NEWBURY, NEW HAMPSHIRE - Fresh off his win at last week’s Tournament of Champions Atkinson Resort and Country Clubs Joe Leavitt fired a four under par 68 to take a two stroke lead after the first round of The Player’s Invitational.

Leavitt lit up the 6,900 yard, par 72 Baker Hill Golf Club for five birdies against only one bogey. He jumped out early with birdies at the second and fourth holes before dropping a shot  at the 434 yard par 4 sixth but came back with a birdie at the par 4- eighth to post a front nine 34.

His back nine was blemish free making par at holes 10-14 before birdying  the par 5- 15th and par 3-17th to come home in 34.     

Sitting two shots back after carding two under par 70’s are Ryan Kohler of Hooper Golf Club and David Larrivee of Manchester Country Club. They will be paired with Leavitt for Sunday’s final round.

Kohler posted matching 35s on each nine making four birdies against two bogeys while Larrivee went out in one over 37 but came home with a three birdie-no bogey- three under par 33.

Tom Hixon out of Wentworth by the Sea and Manchester CC’s Jake Nutter both finished round one at even par 72 to sit four behind Leavitt. They will be paired with Ryan Toombs, another Manchester CC member, who shot two over 74 in the penultimate Sunday grouping.
