Quigley En-Joies Friday 62

By Mercer BaggsJuly 20, 2001, 4:00 pm
Ty Tryon went to sleep with a share of the 18-hole lead in the B.C. Open, only to start his second round trailing by eight strokes.
Thats because Brett Quigley teed off early Friday at the En-Joie Golf Club and fired a 10-under-par 62. Quigley now stands at 15-under 129; three shots clear of his nearest competitors entering weekend play in Endicott, N.Y.
It was a big round for me because I finished with two bogeys yesterday, which upset me, said Quigley.
Mark Hensby (66) and Jonathan Kaye (65) are tied for second place at 12-under. Tryon is now in a tie for 19th place. He remains at 7-under following an even-par 72.
'I showed some stupidness out there,' said Tryon. 'I'm not mad or angry. I'm a little disappointed. It's just the way it goes. I go out there and birdie the first hole tomorrow and I'm right there.'
This is the second time the 17-year-old amateur has made the cut in a PGA Tour event; he did the same in this year's Honda Classic.
Fellow overnight co-leader Edward Fryatt (68) is in fourth place with Jim McGovern (66) at 11-under.
Eleven players have claimed their maiden PGA Tour title at the B.C. Open. Six of the top seven players through 36 holes this week have yet to win on tour. McGovern won the 1993 Shell Houston Open.
Starting at the 1st, Quigley made the turn in a rather routine 3-under-par 34. He then proceeded to record his second bogey of the day at the par-4 10th.
At 7-under-par for the tournament, Quigley would play his next eight holes in 8-under.
Quigley hit a 9-iron to six feet on the par-4 11th and made birdie. He sunk a 60-foot eagle putt on the par-5 12th. He stuck a 5-iron to three feet on the 212-yard par-3 14th; and followed that with a 10-foot birdie putt on the par-4 15th.
Quigley drove the 321-yard par-4 16th and sank the 35-foot putt for his second eagle in five holes. He concluded his scoring by draining another 35-foot putt, this time for birdie, on the par-3 17th.
Never thought Id shoot 62 with two bogeys, said Quigley. I was good about not thinking about the score today.
Quigley is tying to keep alive the Rhode Island wining streak. Quigley lives about two miles from Brad Faxon, who is the two-time defending champion of this event. Faxon is not going for a three-peat; rather, hes playing in The Open Championship.
Quigley has had a successful 2001 campaign. In addition to winning the Buy.Com Arkansas Classic, he finished tied for second at the Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic and tied for fifth at the MasterCard Colonial to secure his 2002 PGA Tour card.
Im more relaxed on the course, said Quigley, who is currently 64th on the PGA Tour money list. Im trying to have more fun, not putting as much pressure on myself.

Rose leads halted Indonesian Masters; Snedeker WDs

By Associated PressDecember 15, 2017, 2:04 pm

JAKARTA, Indonesia - Justin Rose held a three-stroke lead at the Indonesian Masters when bad weather stopped play Friday during the second round.

The Englishman, who shot a 10-under 62 on Thursday, had completed 13 holes and was 5 under on the day at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club course.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat (64) was in second place.

Brandt Snedeker withdrew wit on the 11th hole at 2 under for the day after shooting an opening 72.

There was no reason given for his withdrawal, but the American has been affected by a rib-sternum injury for most of the season. Ranked 51st in the world, he flew to Jakarta looking to move inside the top 50 by the end of the year and ensure a spot in next year's Masters.

Newsmaker of the Year: No. 2, Donald Trump

By Golf Channel DigitalDecember 15, 2017, 1:00 pm

Even away from the White House, President Donald Trump generated plenty of headlines this year.

Trump’s first year in office didn’t dim his enthusiasm for the game, as he made splashy appearances at two big events, tweeted about golf to his more than 44 million followers, teed it up with some of the sport’s biggest stars, including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Lexi Thompson, and fired a few eyebrow-raising scores. Logging more than 75 rounds since his inauguration, the 3-handicap has only bolstered his reputation as the best golfing president, particularly after his alleged 73 with Sen. Lindsey Graham.

None of his appearances created a bigger stir than when he attended the U.S. Women’s Open. Despite protests and calls for the USGA to move its premier women’s event from Trump Bedminster – the president reportedly threatened to sue – his weekend there went off without incident, as Trump watched the action and hosted players in his private box near the 15th green.

Full list of 2017 Newsmakers of the Year

Despite his controversial rhetoric on a variety of national issues, Trump has remained a staunch supporter of women’s golf, and he became the first sitting president to attend the U.S. Women’s Open.

An honorary chairman of the Presidents Cup, Trump also flew to Liberty National for the biennial team event, where he presented the trophy to the U.S. team and dedicated the victory to the hurricane victims in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

In late November, amid tweets about the national anthem, Turkey, Egypt and Time Magazine, Trump announced that he was playing a round in South Florida with Woods and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson.

Yes, that too became a headline, just like everything else Trump did in 2017.

Spieth, Thomas headline winter break trip to Cabo

By Grill Room TeamDecember 15, 2017, 1:05 am

Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. Really good at golf. Really good at vacationing.

With #SB2K18 still months away, Thomas and Spieth headlined a vacation to Cabo San Lucas, and this will shock you but it looks like they had a great time.

Spring break veteran Smylie Kaufman joined the party, as did Thomas' roommate, Tom Lovelady, who continued his shirtless trend.

The gang played all the hits, including shoeless golf in baketball jerseys and late nights with Casamigos tequila.

In conclusion, it's still good to be these guys.
