SACO – Four golfers share the lead at 1-under after Day 1 of the Maine Amateur, including Holden resident, Drew Powell, and Presque Isle’s, Jon Humphrey.
Alex McGonagle and Armand Ouellette are also tied for the lead at Biddeford-Saco Country Club. Defending champion, Cole Anderson, is one shot back at even par. The tournament has been modified to ensure proper health and safety measures are in place amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Foam inserts have been installed in holes, flag sticks are to be left in and fans must social distance. For Anderson, the measures don’t change much.
“It’s not too hard to stay away from people you can kind of be on your own out there and I’m very grateful to have golf courses open up here and still be able to play and practice when I need to and it’s a blessing for sure,” Anderson said.
