eGolf Tour Florida: Peter Campbell Battled Tough Conditions to Lead After One

The second event of the eGolf Tour's Florida series saw the players battling tough and windy conditions in round one of the Orange Tree Open, where Canadian Peter Campbell came through for the 18 hole lead after carding an opening round 3-under 69 for the overnight lead.

Coming off an 11th place finish in last week's Lee Westwood Golf School Open, Campbell was able to put together a bogey-free round besting the field with his 69 on Monday.

Carding all pars on his opening nine, his first birdie did not come until the par-4 12th, getting him to red numbers for the first time in his opening round.

Back-to-back birdies on Nos. 15 and 16 would be good enough for the lead as everyone struggled in the conditions. Where only two players would finish under par in round one.

Former University of Cincinnati golfer David Tepe had an up and down round to end his opening round just one shot back of Campbell's lead.

Tepe carded six birdies on the day only to give four of those back with two bogeys on both sides of the round.

Christian Brand, last week's runner up finished his opening round at Even par, enough for a solo third position heading into round two.
