The 112th Southern Amateur Championship began today at The Club at Olde Stone in Bowling Green, Ky.

Hunter Richardson of Clarksville, Tenn. and Nathan Jeansonne of Keithville La. posted seven-under par 65’s to tie for the lead after round one. Richardson highlighted his round with an eagle at the 11th hole and six birdies. After a level par outward nine, Jeansonne made six birdies in a row from holes 11 thru 16 to get into contention and finished with a birdie on 18 for an incredible back nine of 29.

One shot back in a tie for third place are Stewart Slayden of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla and Luke Long of Fayetteville, Ark. Slayden, one of the youngest players in the field, carded eight birdies and two bogeys on his way to shoot a six-under par 66. Long made birdies on holes two, eight, ten, 11, 15, 16, and 18, and only one birdie for his almost flawless 66.

Southern Junior Champion Charlie Flynn of Shreveport, La. posted a four-over par 76 in the first round, placing him in a tie for 120th position. Flynn won the 46th Southern Junior Championship last month at Squire Creek Country Club in Choudrant, La.
