Allis leads in Amateur


October 05, 2003|By John W. Stewart

Kevin Allis surged into the lead of the Middle Atlantic Golf Association's Men's Amateur championship with a 1-over-par 71 and a 54-hole total of 217 at Baltimore Country Club yesterday. The final round will be played today.

Allis, the 1984 Maryland State Amateur champion, started the day three strokes off the pace. Greg Rodgers, a St. Paul's School senior from Phoenix, rode a 69, the day's best round, into second place at 218.

The round by Baltimorean Allis, 41, runner-up in the City Amateur and fifth in the Maryland State Mid-Am this summer, included birdies at the 10th and 17th holes and three bogeys. Rodgers, 18, recovered from a four-putt triple bogey at the fifth to birdie five of the next 11 holes.
