GLENWOOD SPRINGS — Keith Humerickhouse got off to a great start in pursuit of his third consecutive Glenwood Open championship on Saturday, shooting a 3-under 67 at Glenwood Springs Golf Course to give him a two-stroke edge headed into the second and final round of today’s championship flight.

Humerickhouse, who had to rally from four strokes behind on the first day to earn a five-stroke victory on the final day of last year’s Open, had the best first-day score of the six-flight tournament. Approximately 100 golfers entered this year’s tournament, Glenwood Springs Golf Course golf pro Greg Gortsema said.

Lamar Carlile was in second place with a 1-under 69, with Tristin Rohrbaugh — the son of Iron Bridge Golf Club head professional Doug Rohrbaugh — sitting in third place at 1-over 71.

Doug Jones and Kirk Blaszyk tied for fourth place with a 73, with Jeb Savage of Rifle coming in two strokes back at 75.

Championship-flight competitors will tee off in the early afternoon today, with leaders scheduled to tee off around 2:40 p.m.

A three-way tie sits atop the leaderboard in the first flight. John Lee, Craig Nichols and Silverio Sanchez each carded a first-round 75 to take a one stroke lead over Joe Morrill and Dan Fritz, who head into the second round with a 76.

In the second flight, though Eric Lundin’s 73 would be good enough for fourth place in the championship flight, it was good enough for first place and a two-stroke edge over second-place Mark Smith (75) James Heelan is third, just three strokes off the lead with a 76.

Thursday saw the Glenwood Open Pro-Am, which drew a full field of 15 teams.

In the team standings, Gortsema, Humerickhouse, Jim Richmond and Steve Williams managed a six-stroke victory with a 124, with C.J. Rhyne, Mark Stripp, Jim Ray and Joe Yost second at 130. Winning the individual Pro-Am title was Doug Rohrbaugh, whose 5-under 65 netted him a five-stroke victory over Gortsema and a seven-stroke win over third-place Andy Bucholtz.
