Tuesday began the 2016 Missouri Amateur Championship at Jefferson City Country Club. Play started at 7:30 with a total of 141 golfers.
Morning showers caused a two and a half hour delay, pushing back the afternoon rounds for a late evening. Players rushed to get their rounds in before dark, but not all were successful. Those who did not finish today will tee off tomorrow morning before round two starts.
Out of everyone who finished the leaders are Joey Johnson, who won the Missouri Amateur Championship in 2013 and 2014, and Chad Niezing with a two under par score of 70.
Wednesday’s second round of stroke play will resume at 7:30 a.m. and pairings will be the same as round one. The only change is that players with morning tee times will go off in the afternoon and vice versa.
