De Los Reyes, four others lead Cal Am

Jonathan De Los Reyes of Sacramento shot 4-under-par 68 to share the lead with K.K. Limbhasut of Berkeley, Jake Knapp of Costa Mesa, Lorens Chan of Honolulu and Max Marsico of Las Vegas after the first round of stroke-play qualifying in the 104th California Amateur Championship at Lake Merced Golf Club in Daly City.

De Los Reyes, a senior at St. Mary’s College, holed a 30-foot putt at No. 2 for one of four birdies he carded on his last eight holes while finishing on the front nine.

“I had a slow start but got comfortable pretty fast,” said De Los Reyes, who won the 2014 Alameda Commuters. “After that, it was smooth sailing. I really like the look of the tree-lined fairways. It helps me visualize the shot better.”

Knapp, a senior at UCLA who missed the cut in last week’s U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, recorded a 3-under 33 on the front-nine that included an eagle on the par-5 sixth hole.

Limbhasut, a sophomore at Cal originally from Loma Linda, played a steady round with 14 pars and four birdies.

Chan, a senior at UCLA who tied for second in the Pacific Coast Amateur last year, birdied two of his last four holes, while Marisco, who played at Penn, made his only bogey at No. 12 but bounced back with two birdies down the stretch.

Cody Blick, a senior at San Jose State, shot 69 and tied for sixth with Puwit Anupansuebsai of Anaheim and Perry Cohen of La Jolla.
