Cumberland leads Delovich in tightly bunched Green Hills event: PHOTOS

EVERSON — Longtime Green Hills Country Club member Dave Cumberland fired a two-under par opening-round 68 to claim the lead after the first day of the annual Green Hills-Homer Delovich Memorial Golf Championship here yesterday.

Cumberland, who was in the first group out Saturday morning, shot a 34-34 for his 68 on the par 70 course. He leads a tightly bunched group of golfers on the leader board as just five shots separate the 21 individuals in the championship flight.

Dewey Delovich, the PGA assistant golf professional at South Carolina’s Kiawah Island Club’s Cassique Course, is alone in second place with a 69.

Cumberland and Delovich are followed in the championship flight by Chris Capobianco, Rush Janes and John Kingora, who are all tied for third place with even-par 70s. Doug Kirkpatrick and Mike Revak are tied for sixth with one-over-par 71s.

Cumberland opened the tournament with a bogey on the first hole and closed out the front nine with six pars and birdies on the par four fifth hole and par three seventh hole. He was two-under on the back nine and three-under for the tournament heading to the 18th hole thanks to birdies on the par four 11th hole and the par four 16th hole, but bogeyed 18 to finish two-under for the day.

Delovich, on the other hand, shot a 33-36 for his 69. He birdied the first and third holes on the front and parred the other seven holes. On the back nine he birdied No. 11, but suffered bogeys on No. 13 and No. 17. Delovich has finished among the top four in each of the last three years of the tournament.

Jeremy Enslen, the 2012 runner-up in the tournament, leads a group of six golfers who finished with two-over par 72s. Included in that group are Nick Colantino, Phil Farcin, Pete Hinerman, Ryan Hines and Bob Tajc.

Rounding out the championship flight are Brian Bailey, Jake Helmick, Dave Jamison, Mike Koreski, Harrison Laskey, Caleb Lee, Tom McClurg and Tim Osbourne, who all finished with three-over, opening-round 73s.

The first flight features a competitive group of 21 golfers who are only separated by four shots. The leaders of the first flight are Zac Gower, Terry Greene, Ed Koski, Ryan Moore and Ken Ryan, who all finished with 74s.

The biggest flight of the tournament is second flight which features 33 golfers who finished between 79 and 82. That flight is led by Mario Bombadiere, Barry Edwards, Jim Fleming, Bob Garner, Chuck Hornberger, Scott Howerton and Joey Vincent, who all ended up with 79s.

The third flight will have 22 golfers who are separated by just three shots. Jay Barkley, Ron Beafore, Ron Childers, Mike Gulley, Paul Harbert, Pat Lunghi, Roy Michael, Marty Morgan, Joey Stout and Paul Tonkin all fired opening-round 83s to lead that flight.

The fourth flight, which has 23 golfers, is led by John Cienawski, Jim Hackenberg, Tim Lucente, Randy Tennant and George White, Sr., who all finished with 87s.

Adam Reeves and Larry Stonko are leading the fifth and final flight with 92s. That flight features 15 golfers.

The first tee time for the championship flight will be 1:10. The leaders will tee off at 2 p.m.

  • Steelers WR Antonio Brown aims for repeat of 2013

    Antonio Brown rolled up to the dorms at Saint Vincent College last week in a Mercedes conversion van.
    It’s fitting in a way. Five years into a blossoming career, the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver is playing the role of dad — OK, maybe slightly older brother — to a group long on talent but short on experience.

  • WVU takes first step today

    Perhaps the most used — and least factual — cliché in sports is as follows:

    Around these parts, however, tomorrow is what they are clinging to, while putting a new twist on the cliché, turning it to, “There’s no yesterday.”

  • Pirates’ gaffe on bases proves costly

    Clint Hurdle says he and a pal often marvel over how there’s always something new to see at a baseball game.
    Too bad for Hurdle, what we watched Wednesday wrecked the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 7-5 loss.
    A timely, heads-up glance by reliever Jean Machi helped San Francisco take advantage of a gaffe on the bases by Pittsburgh, and the Giants tagged out of two runners who wandered away on the same play grab momentum and end a six-game losing streak.
