Per update from @OhioStateMGolf this morning (Sunday), the final round of the Jones Cup has been cancelled due to rain. Thus, the second round finish is how the tournament ends. Congratulations to Will and Daniel for a damn solid two rounds of golf.
Will and Daniel will join heir team mates in a few days for the B1G Match Play tournament February 8-9 in Palm Coast, FL.
After two rounds, Will Grimmer is in 3rd place and Daniel Wetterich in 20th. Both players shot 75 (+3) in second round. The field average for the second round was just over 75 strokes, so both gentlemen kept their heads above water.
Will opened with a par, then “stumbled” a bit on the balance of the front nine with four bogeys and a birdie to make the turn at 39 (+3). (Actually, I wouldn’t mind “stumbling” to a nine of 39). He un-stumbled on the back nine with seven pars and a nine of 36 (E) for a round of 75 (+3).
Will sits in T-3 with a score of 143 (-1).
Will began his event on the back nine with a birdie on the par-5 10th hole, always a nice way to start. He followed with back to back birdies on #14 and #15 to make the turn at 33 (-3). Will followed with a back nine of 35 (-1) to have a tournament leading 68 (-4) and a two stroke lead over Stephen Franken’s (Raleigh, NC) 70.
Daniel followed up his opening round 75 (+3) with another 75 (+3). He speed-bumped on his front side with a double-bogey on the par-5 third hole. However, he finished the nine in even par to make the turn in 38 (+2). Daniel’s back nine was well played; 6 pars and a birdie enroute to a 37 (+1) and a round of 75 (+3).
Daniel sits in T-20 with a score of 150 (+6).
Daniel also began his round on the back nine. He opened with bogeys on two of his first three holes, then got back to level par with back to back birdies on #13 and #14. Two additional bogies got Daniel to the turn in decent shape at 38 (+2). His back nine of 2 birdies/3 bogies 37 (+1) was even better. His round of 75 (+3), left him only two strokes out of the top ten.
