Summit County Amateur Golf ChampionshipRound 1 is in the books for the 2017 edition of the Summit County Amateur Championship, and it’s a four-way tie at the top after Saturday’s play.

Four players posted a score of 1-under par 70 in the first round at Good Park Golf Course in Akron:

– 2016 CMG Player of the Year Niko Anagnost of Cleveland (photo at top);

– past Summit County Am champion Kurt Peterson of Massillon (photo below);

Drew Savage Jonathan Lieser– Walsh University player Drew Savage of Canal Fulton (left); and

Jonathan Lieser of Minerva and Tannenhauf Golf Club (right).

Clevelanders Chris Okeson and Howard Clendenin are both one shot back after posting an even-par 71.

Kurt Peterson 2017 Summit County Am Rd1
Massillon’s Kurt Peterson rolls home a birdie putt on the par-4 15th to share the first round lead.

The windy conditions kept players from taking the scoring low. That means a large number of players have a great shot at claiming the 2017 Summit County crown in tomorrow’s final round. How many? A whopping 27 players are within four shots of the lead, 41 players within 5 shots…

BIG SKIN WINNER:   Just one skin winner in Round 1 — an eagle 2 on the par-4 Hole #12 by Jim Krivanek of Mayfield Village! He drove the green to six feet and buried the putt to earn a cool $1,120. This is the prime example of why you ALWAYS play in the Summit County Am every year and why you ALWAYS get into the skins pot…
