The dust has cleared from the weekend golf. How did our Buckeyes fare?
Rachel Rohanna missed the cut this week and also gets this coming week off. The Ladies Scottish Open will be played without her.
Ryan Armour played this weekend in Opelika, AL. His two round score of 136 (-6) placed him in T-29 after Friday play.
Ryan duplicated his score of his first two rounds during his closing two rounds of 68-68 – 136 (-6). His four round score of 272 (-12) placed Ryan in T-27 place.
His Saturday 68 was highlighted by an eagle 3 on the par-5, 5th hole. On Sunday, it was an eagle 3 on the par-5, 13th hole. Very nice, Ryan, very nice.
Up next for Ryan; he’ll be in the Oakville (Toronto) area this coming week for the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Country Club.
Bo Hoag improved his play in Omaha over the weekend. His first two rounds of 71-70 got him into the weekend play and his final two rounds of 68-69 moved him up 10 spots to T-33 position.
Bo’s Saturday round was a gem; 3 birdies and 15 pars. On Sunday, Bo had a superb front nine of 32 (-4) but opened and closed his back nine with bogeys on #10 and #18. Still, yet another under-par round for Bo.
Coming off a well played weekend, Bo moves down the road to Overton Park, KS this coming week for the Digital Ally Open.
Meanwhile in Montreal, Tee-K Kelly stayed north of the border for the weekend. His Thursday and Friday rounds of 66 – 69 (-5) on the par 70 course were backed up by weekend scoring of 69-70 (-1), good enough to place Tee-K in 29th place.
Tee-K had 4 birdies in each of his weekend rounds, but they were somewhat offset by bogeys. The good news is that Tee-K kept his weekend clean by avoiding any score higher than bogey.
The next Mackenzie Tour event is in two weeks. For now, I’ll assume Tee-K will be in the field, stay tuned.
2017 Porter Cup
Daniel Wetterich had a decent showing at the recently concluded Porter Cup held at Niagara Falls Country Club in nearby Lewsiton, NY. Daniel’s four round score of 286 (+6) placed him in 28th place.
Daniel got off to a very good start in his opening round with a 67 (-3) which set him in 4th place after the first day. The second round got a bit away from him (75 (+5), but Daniel did finish the weekend in good form with back to back 72’s.
A good tournament for Daniel, I hope he returns, with other Buckeyes, to the Porter Cup in 2018,
Nothing new to report. I’m pretty sure I’ll have something for next week. In fact, I know I will…
