Curt Norman takes early lead at City tournament

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

It was probably a good thing for the rest of the field that Curt Norman was a little off his game.

Despite what Norman characterized as a so-so round Saturday, he sits at the top of the leaderboard in the men’s championship flight of the Los Alamos City Golf Championship. Norman shot a 1-over 73 to take the day one lead ahead of four other top golfers after the first 18 holes.

The tournament, being played at Los Alamos Golf Course, concludes today. A shotgun start is scheduled for 8:30 a.m.

“I didn’t play all that well, but I scored pretty well,” said the first round leader Norman following Saturday’s outing. “I wasn’t right on the mark where I wanted to be, but I made a lot of pars. I don’t have any complaints with my round…I was just a little off on all my shots.”

Norman could have plenty of company in today’s final, which for the men is scheduled for 27 holes.

Anyone within six strokes of the lead after 18 today will play an additional nine holes to determine the 2009 champion.

Heading into today, three other competitors — Cheylan Gresham, Jason Norman and Cale Jones — are within striking distance. Only 2007 City tournament champion Tim Johnson, at 12-over, slid off the pace Saturday.
