Brad McDougald Leads Brick Capital By 2 After Opening 65

Brad McDougald fired an opening round 6-under par 65 to take a two-shot lead after day one of the 47th Annual Brick Capital Classic at Sanford Golf Club. McDougald finished with a front nine 30 to add to an opening nine 35 and will start Brick Sunday two shots ahead of Steve Hamby – who eagled his final hole in an up and down round that finished at 67. Daniel Neveu of Pinehurst was the only player under par in the morning group with a 69 while Jonathan Hockaday and Adam Webb were the only other players under par on day one with 70s.

McDougald was the steadiest of the day and after opening with 2 birdies and one bogey on the back 9 for a 35, didn’t miss a shot the rest of the way – picking up birdies at 1, 3, 5, 8 and 9.   The long hitting Hamby sprinkled 5 birdies and an eagle on the card to offset 3 bogeys. 

Gerald Harrington leads the Senior Division after a 67.  David Barbour and Craig Sturdivant finished at 71.
