Plumas Lake GC took the first round lead but the leaderboard is a total logjam.
The Plumas Lake GC squad, made up of teammates Les Noggle, Brian Tahara, R.F. Martin and Mike Biehle, opened with a 18-under 126 on Monday at par-72 Spyglass Hill. The team posted a front-nine 61 playing in a format that takes the two best net scores of a four-person team.
The crowded leaderboard has four other teams–Ancil Hoffman GC, Belmont CC, The Ridge GC and Monterey Pines GC —just a shot back at 127. Sacramento GC is also in the immediate mix after a 128.
Tuesday’s final round will see play shift over to par-71 Poppy Hills.
