Wet playing conditions didn't deter the 86 players from around the
state who turned out for the first round of the inaugural Durham Senior
Amateur golf tournament on Monday at Hillandale Golf Course.
Burlington's Wayne Pyrtle led the way by shooting a 3-under-par 68 to
top the Senior Division and overall standings. Durham's Don Slater was
second at 69, and Durham's Michael Frye and Jamestown's Larry Boswell
shared third at 70.
In the Super Senior Division for players 65 and older, Raleigh's Bob
Rudolph and Southern Pines' Dean Hundley topped the leaderboard with
71s. Chapel Hill's Ron Johnston was at 72.
