Adam Wynia, a professional from Active Golf Training, shot 4-under-par 68 to lead the Minnesota State Open Championship after the first of three rounds at Bunker Hills Golf Club on Friday.

Wynia leads seven players who finished their first round at 3-under 69 on the 7,115-yard course in Coon Rapids. Those players include five pros: Trent Peterson and Ralph Baxley from Valleywood GC; Mario Tiziani from Windsong Farm GC; Jeremy Decko from Alexandria GC; and Jeff Sorenson from Columbia Learning Center. Also in that group are amateurs Travis Ross from Grand Forks CC and Tom Jenkins from Sundance GC.

In all, 38 players in the 156-player field shot par or better on a perfect day to score. The field will be cut to the lowest 60 and ties after Saturday's round, with the final round coming Sunday.
