Things looking tight after day one of the Bakersfield Open

Felix Mory of Palm Springs and Kolton Lapa of Mesa, Ariz., finished the first day of the Bakersfield Open golf tournament tied atop the leaderboard with a five-under par score of 65.

One shot behind the pair is David Kim of Buena Park, who recorded a minus-6 66.

A log-jammed, 10-way tie for eighth-place contained three local players. Stockdale grads Blake Bourelle and Matt Picanso and Centennial grad Manav Shah all finished the day three strokes off the lead with a two-under 68.

The three-day tournament is being played at the Bakersfield Country Club.
