Par for the Course


August 29, 2009 12:54 AM

Yes, there is pro golf being played outside of N.Y.

Mark O'Meara eagled the Par 5, 18th on Friday to take a two-shot lead over Loren Roberts, Mark McNulty and John Jacobs at the Champions Tour's Boeing Classic at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge in Snoqualmie, Washington. (Don't feel bad, I had to drag out an atlas to find out it is about 30 miles east of Seattle too.)
Meanwhile, after a short drive across New Jersey from The Barclays, the Nationwide Tour's Northeast Pennsylvania Classic at Elmhurst Country Club in Moscow, PA has completed its second round of play.
Guy Boros, the son of the late Julius Boros, a two-time U.S. Open champion and Hall of Famer, surged to a two-shot lead over Henrik Bjornstad with a brilliant 6-under, 64 and sits at 9-under after 36 holes.
All the way across the country in North Plains, OR, the LPGA Tour has descended on the Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club for the Safeway Classic. Beth Bader fired an opening round 8-under, 64 and leads a trio of golfers by one shot.
