On a hot and humid day in North Jersey, 95 competitors averaged 74.6 for the round.  

Greyserman, an incoming freshman at Princeton University, had six birdies and an eagle with just one blemish on his scorecard.  

“Everything was going pretty well,” Greyserman said of his round. “I didn't chip well, but I drove it really well. If you good drives here, then you're hitting a lot of wedges. That was the most important thing to do.” 

Last year Greyserman finished t-19 in the Amateur Championship at Manasquan River Golf Club. His older brother, Max, who is currently on the PGA TOUR, won the Amateur in 2015 at Morris County Golf Club. 

Thomas O’Neill of Hackensack Golf Club finished right behind Greyserman turning in a 6-under par 65. The incoming sophomore at Holy Cross University tallied six birdies and an eagle – he had just two bogeys on Monday. 

“I putt it really well,” O’Neill mentioned. “My caddie Maddox gave me some great reads and we were seeing the line really well. I kept the ball in front of me and I didn't get in too much trouble. Overall I hit some smart shots. Twenty feet for birdie is not that bad. I didn’t fire at every single pin – I was just taking it one shot at a time one."

O’Neill, 19, thought with the right course management skills Forest Hill suited his game.

“It's not intimidating on the card, but you definitely have to think your way around here, apply yourself in good spots, missing the right spots,” O’Neill said of Forest Hill. "I like it, it’s a lot of fun to play.” 

Defending champion Jack Wall recorded a 3-over par 73 and sits in t-40.  

After 36-holes, a cut will be made to the low 40 scorers plus ties. The lowest 40 scorers will advance to July 10, which will be 36-holes.   

Spectators are encouraged to attend, and admission throughout the event is free of charge. Use of carts will not be permitted.
