Crowded Leaderboard After Round One of the Amateur

Leetzow, Mock, and Takacs head the field going into the cut day.

The leaderboard is crowded after the first round of the 83'd Florida State Amateur Championship, but three players including two-time champion Mark Leetzow are at the top.

Leetzow, a left-hander from Sarasota who won the State Amateur in 1995 and 1997, shot 2-under par 70 at the 7,100 yard Pine Tree Golf Club in Boynton Beach. Tampa's Kevin Mock and Clearwater's Brendan Takacs also shot 2-under par 70's to share the lead.

Seven players shot even-par to trail by two, while 31 players are within 4 strokes of the leaders. Gainesville's Buddy Alexander, the 1991 State Amateur champion and current golf coach at the University of Florida, shot a 1-over 73, while Doug LaCrosse, the 1992 State Amateur champion, was one of 12 players to shoot a 2-over par 74.

Round two begins tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. The top 70 plus ties after the second round will advance to the weekend.
