Gilman, Wooding share Cal Open lead


Chris Gilman of Yorba Linda carded two eagles while posting a 9-under-par 63 and was tied for the lead with Jeremiah Wooding of Riverside after the first round of the 115th California State Open on the Champions Course at Morongo Golf Club at Tukwet Canyon in Beaumont.

Gilman (pictured) carded his eagles on the par-4 13th and the par-5 16th holes, while Wooding collected nine birdies and nine pars.

“After the first (eagle), I was struggling to remember the last time I made an eagle in a tournament,” Gilman said. “When the second one dropped, I thought it must really be my day.”

Amateur Cory Gladstone of San Diego was third with a 65, while Darren Angel of Northridge shot 66 and was tied for fourth with Joshua Wooding of Riverside.

Amateur Danny Ochoa of Rancho Santa Fe totaled 67 and tied for sixth with Eric Meichtry of Murrieta, Ben Geyer of Arbuckle and Stephen Hale of Bakersfield.
