Two Tied Atop Senior After One Round
Author: Greg Howell
August 25th 2015 - Wolfeboro, NH – On a day that started at 7:30 am and ended with the final putt dropping at 7:08 pm, many players struggled to get a good rhythm going at Kingswood Golf Club for the 1st round of the New Hampshire Senior Amateur. Bob Mielcarz (Concord CC) and Mike Blair (Bretwood GC) are tied atop the leaderboard with identical 73’s. They will be joined in the final pairing on Wednesday with 2013 Runner-Up Bill Everett, who is one-shot back.

Tuesday’s first round had three delays that totaled for over four hours in length.

Mielcarz, a nine-time New Hampshire Amateur Champion, had an up and down day full of excitement. He made 4 birdies, 3 bogeys, and an unfortunate double bogey on the 10th hole. Mielcarz finished his last two holes 2-under par to finish at 1-over 73. Blair, who was in the final group in 2014 and the penultimate group in 2013, bookended his 73 with a double bogey and a bogey, going 2-under par over the 16 holes in between.

Four-time defending Champion Phil Pleat (Nashua CC) finished his first round at 77. Pleat did not make a single birdie on the 6,243 layout where he has previously experienced success. 2014 Runner-Up Dan Arvanitis (Derryfield CC) shot a 76 and is just three shots back of the leaders.

All of the players will return tomorrow for the final round which will begin at 7:30 am.
