Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 13, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Kerres Surprise Iowa Am Leader Best Ever Round for C. R. Golfer CEDAR FALLS (AP) Glenn Kerres of Cedar Rapids shot the best score of his career and grabbed a one-stroke lead in the iirst round of the Men’s State Amateur golf tournament. Kerres, 34, carded a four-under-par 03 at Beaver Hills Country club Friday for his slim lead over Ivan Miller of Eldora and Jim Carney of Des Moines. Kerres, who said he has entered the Iowa Amateur every year and had never before broken par, rolled in a 35-footer to birdie the par-3 17th hole to make the turn in one-under 35, then zoomed around the front side in three-under 33. Miller, an Eldora school-teacher, was right behind Kerres with a 33-36—69 headed into Saturday’s second round. Carney, a former state champion, shot a 35-35—70 for third place. Bill Heldmar of Des Moines was one-shot back at 34-36—71. Seven golfers were deadlocked in fifth place with 72s. They included Lon Nielson of Belle Plaine (36-36), Don DeHa-ven of Oelwein (37-35), John Liechty of Marshalltown (36-36) J Mark Rohde of Marshalltown (36-36), II. Parsons of Webster City (35-37), Chuck Reeves of Des Moines (39-33) and Jim Dawson of Wellman (35-37). The field of 202 entries was trimmed to the low 150 for Saturday’s 18 holes, with scores of 83 and under continuing on. Another cut will send the low 50 and ties into the 36-hole1 championship windup on Sunday. First Round Player Takes British Open By Ronald Thomson    for 286. Nicklaus was third after LYTHAM ST.
