Blair Harkins, PGA of Rolling Hills Country Club set the pace in the Southern California PGA Professional Championship taking the lead in the first round carding a 3-under par 69 at TPC Valencia. Harkins finds himself one shot clear of the field with PGA Professionals Jon Fiedler and Kenny Pigman one shot back each posting a 70 (-2).
TPC Valencia was a challenging test today with only six players in the 132 player field posting red numbers. The leader, Harkins, faced the harsh conditions of round one teeing off in the afternoon wave with gusty winds, but got off to a hot start carding a 32(-4) in his first nine holes.
Round two resumes tomorrow, September 13th at 7:00am. Following tomorrow’s round a cut of 60 low and ties will be made for the final round.
