Hanover Country Club's Toland leads stroke play tourney

Joe Toland of Hanover Country Club fashioned four birdies for a two-stroke lead after the opening round of the New Hampshire Golf Association's Stroke Play Championship at Green Meadow Golf Club in Hudson Monday.

Toland, who converted 13 pars, birdied holes 2 and 4 and finished 2-under on the front side. He made birdie on hole 13, bogeyed hole 14 and birdied the 18th hole to finish with a 3-under 69.

Trailing Toland in second place with a 71 are Josh Chamberlain of Crotched Mountain of Francestown, Joe Leavitt of Atkinson and Damon Salo of the Shattuck Golf Club in Jaffrey.

Chamberlain had a strong start, making birdies on holes 2, 3 and 9. He bogeyed hole 4, but still managed a 2-under score heading into the back nine. He parred every hole on the backside except hole 17 where he made bogey.

Leavitt, a former NHGA State Am winner, birdied holes 2, 9 and 18. He bogeyed holes 4 and 17 and finished his round with 13 pars.

Salo recovered from a shaky start after a bogey on hole 2 and a double bogey on hole 3. He recovered nicely with birdies on holes 4, 5 and 9. He got to 1-under with a birdie on hole 18.
