CEDAR FALLS n If you ask Marc Cahalan, Saturday's opening round at the Cedar Falls City Amateur golf tournament was simply routine.

Cahalan shot 3-under par 69 at Pheasant Ridge to carry a one-stroke lead heading into today's final round at Beaver Hills Country Club.

"Honestly, it was ho-hum," Cahalan said. "I'm used to playing out there. I do all my practicing there. Basically, it was just another round except it was at 7:20 this morning."

And it was a round that propelled Cahalan to top of the leaderboard. Despite some struggles on the back nine, which included a double bogey on No.15, Cahalan rebounded to make eagle on No.17 on his way back to the clubhouse.

"No.15 is a par-4, and my second shot went under a pine tree.," Cahalan said. "I did hit my driver well, which put me in position."

The 2003 Waterloo Open Amateur champion also avoided windier conditions in the afternoon.

"It was calm this morning. Apparently all the wind came up after I was done," Cahalan said.

This is Cahalan's first year playing at the Cedar Falls tournament. And since he's a former Northern Iowa golfer, Cahalan feels comfortable about today's round at Beaver Hills.

"Being on the UNI team, I've gotten to practice out there. I'm pretty confident with the greens, even though they're faster than I like," Cahalan noted.

Former Cedar Falls High and current Loras College golfer Adam Luehmann carded a 70 to position himself in a tie for second with Todd Hintgen.

"I thought it was a good round. I started out with a bogey on the first hole, then got on a streak of pars and made birdie on No.8," Luehmann said. "I just hit it solid all day."

After bogeying No.16, Luehmann birdied the final two holes to go 2-under par for his round. That enabled Luehmann to make the cut and advance to Beaver Hills for the first time at the tournament.

"I'm only one stroke back right now, so I feel really good about that," said Luehmann, who missed the cut by one stroke last year. "I've played Beaver (Hills) a few times. It's a good course. Just keep the ball in the fairways and on the greens, and you should be in good shape."

Defending champion Niel Doak shot 73 in the first round of his defense of the Bob Leahy Cup. He cited no birdies on the final nine holes as a reason for the 1-over par round.

"The back nine just got me," Doak said. "I just hit some really bad shots. I made too many bogeys on the back nine."

Doak doesn't want to be counted out just yet, however.

"Nobody is running away with it. (The low round) is a ways away, but it's not out of the realm. I've played out at Beaver Hills. Anybody can shoot 78, and I know I can shoot two or 3-under and maybe have a chance," Doak said.
