Maryland alumnus Sean Bosdosh, a professional from Holly Hills Country Club, sat in a four-way tie for first after one day of the Maryland Open, but a strong second day helped him pull into the lead by himself with 18 holes to play.

Bosdosh shot a 7-under 65 Tuesday at Bulle Rock Golf Course in Havre de Grace, lowering his score to 10 under for the week and taking a two-stroke lead over Connor Tendall, another former Terp and an unattached professional.


Bosdosh eagled the par-5 eighth hole and the par-5 14th, and birdied six holes to erase three bogeys.

After one day at Bulle Rock Golf Course in Harford County, four golfers sit atop the leaderboard at the Maryland Open championship.

Gilman alumnus Brad Miller, another unattached professional, shot a 2-under 70 each of the first two days to move into third place at 4 under.


He, Bosdosh and Tendall will be the last threesome today, starting play at 9:30 a.m.

Through the first day of golf Monday, Bosdosh and Tendall shared the top spot with Matt Bassler (Loyola Maryland) and Billy Peel, a Potomac native who played at Eastern Kentucky.

Peel shot an even-par 72 Tuesday to stay in fourth, but Bassler slipped to plus-3 and fell 10 strokes off the lead. The winning purse for the tournament is $45,000.

Homeboykris, one of the two horses who died on Preakness Day, was running with an elevated level of the anti-inflammatory drug Dexamethasone in his blood.
