AUGUSTA – Over 100 amateurs and pros teed it up at the Charlies Maine Open Tuesday.
Chelso Barrett and Peter French are the leaders at 6-under.
Tampa, Florida native Kevin Benstead finished up with a 4-under 66 and is in the hunt heading into the second round.
“It was pretty smooth sailing on the front nine, I played pretty well and then on the back nine I think I got a little tired. Just made some silly mistakes so it probably effected me a little the heat in the end,” Benstead said.
