After a bogey on the 370-yard, par-4 fifth, Gregory responded
by draining a 30-footer for birdie on No. 6 to move to 1-under

said Gregory, who hit 14 of 18 greens on the day. "But
I made birdie on No. 6 to get back on track. That putt gave
me confidence, then I started making more putts for par."
Five players, including four Ontario natives, finished a shot
off the pace in a tie for second. Michael Cuff of Toronto,
Ontario; Justin Regier of East Amherst, N.Y.; Mikhial Pasic
