Schenk nabs 41st place at Rocket
DETROIT — Adam Schenk couldn't keep up his second-round pace, shooting 72 and 70 over the weekend to finish 41st at 8-under par in the Rocket Mortgage Classic on Sunday.
The Vincennes golfer was just one off the day's best round Friday, a 6-under 66, to rally to make the cut at the PGA event. That put Schenk in 21st place, but his Saturday even-par round dropped him 26 spots to 47th before making a climb over six players on Sunday. Schenk only made one bogey Sunday, on the par-4 11th. His birdies came on the par-4 second and third holes, and the par-5 14th.
The finish earned Schenk $24,116 for the week, upping his yearly earnings to $558,898. He also tallied 11 FedExCup points and moved up one spot to 135th in the yearly standings. The top 125 at the end of the regular season next month retain their PGA cards for the 2021-22 season.
Cam Davis was a first-time PGA winner, holding off Troy Merritt in a five-hole playoff after each shot 18-under in the 72-hole tournament. The victory was worth $1,350,000 and 500 FedEx points for Davis, moving him up 47 spots to 34th in the yearly standings.
The tour's heads this week to the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill. When the tournament last played, in 2019, Schenk had a season-best, sixth-place finish at 16-under.
