Lori Potter of the East Aurora Country Club is tied for sixth with a 7-over-par 80 after the first round of the New York State Golf Association Women’s Senior Championship at the Whiteface Club in Lake Placid. Defending champion Kim Kaul of Gowanda CC is tied for 10th at 83. Mary Sicard of Queensbury CC led the first round with 1-over 74.
Potter had two birdies in her round on Nos. 15 and 17 but bogeyed after each. Kaul, who also won the Senior title in 2008, would have been been closer to the lead were it not for her triple-bogey eight on No. 18.
Lindley Bowen of Tan Tara GC is tied for sixth in the Super Senior division. Judy Rivizzigno of Drumlins CC in Manlius leads with 6-over 79.
