Wensel fires 7-under for first-round lead at W.Va. Amateur

Jul. 31—WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS — Kyle Wensel shot a scorching 7-under par 63 to take the first day lead at the 103rd West Virginia Amateur Sunday on the Meadows Course at The Greenbrier.

Wensel had eight birdies, including on his final three holes. That helped add distance between him and Ryan Bilby, who made par on Nos. 16-18, and to hold off Davey Jude, who closed with back-to-back birdies.

Bilby and Jude finished tied for second at 4-under.

Cameron Jarvis, Christian McKisic, Jonathan Clark, Joseph Kalaskey, Jess Ferrell and Noah Mullens all were at 2-under for a six-way tie for fourth.

Wyoming East graduate and Concord golfer Brett Laxton tied for 10th at 1-under.

Shady Spring's Tanner Vest was in the top 15 at even par.

The State Am will continue Monday on the Old White TPC.
