The season has “officially, unofficially” started. The 2015 Memorial Championships kicked off today as top players looked to attack the course on a beautiful day.
The Pro Women field featured a (-3) effort from Valerie Jenkins (Doss) followed by Paige Pierce sitting at (-1). The two are the only women under par in the first round. World Champion Catrina Allen is 6 shots behind the leader at (+3). Other notables include Liz Carr at (+4), Jessica Weese at (+5) and former World Champion, Sarah Hokom at (+7).
Ricky Wysocki made some clutch putts including a lengthy one on hole 17 for his 8th birdie in a row. Yes, 8. Wycokci secures the hot round on day 1 with a fantastic 41, good for (-15)! This is only 2 strokes off the record 39 shot by Paul McBeth a few years back! Wysocki carded 15 birdies without a single bogey. Will Schusterick followed with a (-14) effort as well as Paul McBeth at (-12). The three played on the same card along with Jake LaPutka.
