GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Lamar Carlisle had a stellar day at Glenwood Springs Golf Course on Saturday, overcoming three bogies to finish at 5-under 65 to take a two-shot lead into the second and final day of the annual Glenwood Open golf tournament.

Carlisle, who hails from the Denver area, carded birdies on the holes 1, 2, 5, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 15. His bogies came on holes 3, 6 and 18, but they didn’t keep him from holding the lead after the first day of the 36-hole tournament on the nine-hole course. His first round on Saturday was four strokes better than he fared in same round from a year ago, when he finished third and 11 strokes back of Keith Humerickhouse, who defended his tournament title by shooting a two-day score of 8-under 132.

Humerickhouse, who lives in Eagle but still calls Glenwood his home golf course, shot a 3-under 67 on Saturday for second place. He shot a bogey-free round, netting birdies on holes 6, 12 and 15.

Michael Smith of Rifle was at 1-under 69 for third place. Smith, who had one bogey and three birdies, shares the course record for best round (9-under 61) with Jess Westley, Greg Gortsema and Kirk Blaszyk.

Blaszyk, who finished fourth last year, shot a first-round score of 75. Jared Bickling is fourth at 72, with Tristin Rohrbaugh and Mark Barlau sitting at 73.

The tournament continues and concludes today, with lower-flight rounds teeing off at 7:30 this morning. Championship flight play will tee off at 12:50 p.m., with tournament leaders Carlile, Humerickhouse and Smith teeing off at 1:20 p.m.

Dave Sorel’s 72 gave him the first-flight lead on Saturday, with Jeff Otto’s 78 netting a first-round lead in the second flight. Kevin Hodgins leads the third flight after his first-round score of 80. In the fourth flight, which uses net scoring, Doug Larson’s 64 was good enough for a two-stroke lead over Mike Stickler (66).

The pro-am part of the tournament, played on Thursday, was won by Doug Rohrbaugh. The head pro at Ironbridge Golf Club in Glenwood Springs shot a 65 to win by seven strokes over second-place finishers C.J. Rhyne and Kyler Booher (72).

In the team pro-am tournament, Gortsema, Humerickhouse, Steve Williams and Ron Nadon combined for a 124 for a three-shot win over the second-place team of Doug Rohrbaugh, Tristin Rohrbaugh, Jay Abrahamovich and Stickler.
