Three Saline residents teed off in the first round of the 108th Michigan Amateur Championship Tuesday played on North Course at Oakland Hills Country Club.
Mike Ignaskiak, the former Milwaukee Brewers pitcher who owns the Saline Dairy Queen, shot a four-over 74 and is tied for 51st. Ian Martin is tied for 109th at 78. Rob Spears shot 80 and is tied for 129th.
Grand Blanc's Logan Price shot 64 and leads the pack at -6. Price tied the competitive course record for amateurs held by Oakland Hills members Jim Graham and Scott Strickland and was one off the best score previously recorded on the North – a 63 by the PGA Tour’s Matt Kuchar in a 2007 British Open qualifier hosted by the club.
