BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. – Lipscomb University junior Dawson Armstrong, 20, of Brentwood, Tenn., fired a 6-under-par 64 Monday to hold the lead after the first round of stroke play in the 116th U.S. Amateur Championship at Oakland Hills Country Club’s North and South courses.

“I’m actually a little more excited about just a personal goal,” Armstrong said. “I’ve shot a lot of 65s but I’ve never shot 64 in a tournament, so it feels really good to finally reach that hump.”

The 2015 Western Amateur and Dogwood Invitational champion posted seven birdies against one bogey on the North Course to hold a one-stroke lead over Gavin Hall, of Pittsford, N.Y., Robin Petersson, of Sweden, and Alex Smalley, of Wake Forest, N.C.

Among players with Oklahoma ties, Brad Dalke of Hobart and the University of Oklahoma shot 69 on the North Course. Brendon Jelley of Tulsa and Oklahoma State University shot 71, also on the North Course.

Also shooting 71 were Oklahoma State golfer Zachary Bauchou and OSU commit  Matthew Wolff of Agoura Hills, Calif. Grant Hirschman of OU shot 72 as did Zachary Olsen of OSU. Conrad Wacher of Oklahoma City shot 80

A group of six players, including Sam Horsfield, 19, of England, fired 4-under-par 66s on the North Course to trail Armstrong by two strokes.

Joining Horsfield, ranked No. 2 in the World Amateur Golf Rankingâ„¢, at 66 were 2015 U.S. Mid-Amateur runner-up Marc Dull, 30, of Winter Haven, Fla., Cristobal Del Solar, 22, of Chile, University of Texas junior Taylor Funk, 20, of Ponte Vedra, Fla., University of North Carolina junior Ben Griffin, 20, of Chapel Hill, N.C., and Auburn University junior Ben Schlottman, 20, of Winston-Salem, N.C.

University of Michigan sophomore Nick Carlson, of Hamilton, Mich., and University of Texas junior and 2013 U.S. Junior Amateur champion Scottie Scheffler, of Dallas, Texas, shot 3-under-par 67, the day’s lowest scores on the South Course, which was dubbed “The Monster” by Ben Hogan after winning the 1951 U.S. Open.

Gunn Yang, the 2014 U.S. Amateur champion, posted an even-par 70 on the North Course.

A total of 49 players broke par (34 on North Course and 15 on South Course).

Both courses, designed by Donald Ross, are playing to a par of 70. The South Course, which has hosted six U.S. Open Championships, plays to 7,334 yards and the North Course lists a yardage of 6,849.

The 2016 U.S. Amateur Championship consists of 36 holes of stroke play, followed by six rounds of match play, which begins Wednesday (Aug. 17) and concludes with Sunday’s 36-hole championship.

The U.S. Amateur is one of 13 national championships conducted annually by the United States Golf Association, 10 of which are strictly for amateurs.

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich.  – Results from Monday’s first round of stroke play at the 2016 U.S. Amateur Championship, played at the North (6,849-yard, par 35-35-70) and South Courses (7,334-yard, par 35-35-70) of Oakland Hills Country Club. (NC=North Course; SC=South Course):
