A Wet Start to the Lee’s Hill Open

September 27, 2009 by  

Competitors toughed it out in the first round of the Capital Area Golf Tour’s “Lee’s Hill Open” in Fredericksburg, VA under less than favorable weather conditions.  With temperatures only in the high 60′s as the first groups were heading out onto the course, the rain began as a scattered drizzle, off and on.  However, deeper into the round, it became a bit more steady.  And, by the time the last groups were making their way up 17 and 18, it was a steady rain that was forecasted to continue through the night.

Several players managed sub-80 rounds, even in the deteriorating conditions described, and found themselves at the top of the leaderboard in their respective age divisons. Amber Liu, of Vienna, VA (78) in the Girls 10-12 Division, Marcus Byrd from Hampton, VA (79) in the Boys 10-12 Division and Jackson Lizardo of Fairfax, VA (77) in the Boys 13-15 Division.

Other leaders include:

Marshall Wood, Fredericksburg, VA (80) – Boys Under 10

Nicole Flores, Brambleton, VA (95) – Girls 13 -1 5

Robert Powell, Mechanicsville, VA (82) – Boys 16-18

Sunday’s final round should find better conditions weather-wise.  The first tee time will be at noon.  Barring any changes to the weather forecast it should be a bit warmer and drier.  Course conditions still may be a bit wet but based on the play from yesterday, the competitors are up to the challenge.

The Lee’s Hill Open is being played at Lee’s Hill Golf Club in Fredericksburg, VA.  The address is 10200 Old Dominion Parkway.  If you are in the area on Sunday, come by and check out the action.  The first group tees off at noon.
