Local Lutterus leads the charge at Jacob's Creek
BY iseekgolf.com | Web.com Tour | 2007 Jacob's Creek Open | Round One | 15 Feb 2007
South Australian David Lutterus has equalled the course record and secured the outright lead on day one of the Jacob’s Creek Open Championship at Kooyonga in Adelaide.
Lutterus, who is a Kooyonga member, eagled his last hole – the 468-metre par-five ninth – to finish with a round of eight-under 64.
He made a promising start with a minus-three front nine, and took a share of the lead with another three birdies before opening up his two-stroke buffer at the end of his round.
The last player to shoot a 64 at the championship was Craig Parry in 1999. Parry went on to win the event that year.
Fellow Australian Brett Rumford and Brad Ott of America were the early clubhouse leaders after carding 66s; their rounds including seven birdies and a bogey.
Rumford had a strong short game with 27 putts and Ott’s four-under back-nine was a highlight.
A further shot back, at five under, is a group of 10 golfers including including Australians Greg Chalmers, Steven Jeffress, Peter Wilson, Anthony Brown and Ben Bunny.
