Premier pairing in Tour's Boise event


The Tour’s Albertsons Boise Open has a little something for everyone this week – in the same group, no less.

Casey Martin, Patrick Cantlay and Jamie Sadlowski will play together for the first two rounds at Hillcrest Country Club. They tee off at 2:55 p.m. Thursday

This is the second of three pro events scheduled for Martin, the disabled golfer who nearly made the cut at this year’s U.S. Open. The head men’s coach at Oregon already has accepted a sponsor exemption into the PGA Tour’s Las Vegas event in October.

Cantlay was the No. 1-ranked amateur in the world before he turned pro earlier this season. He shot 63 in a Monday qualifier for the event.

Like Martin, Sadlowski, a two-time Re/Max long-drive champion, received a sponsor exemption.
