PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — After an acceptable start, Adam Schenk’s second-nine put him behind schedule at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Thursday.
The Vincennes golfer shot a 3-over-par 75, putting him 135th in the 156-man field. He most definitely needs a round in the 60s today to make the cut.
Unfortunately for Schenk, he has less time to make up ground. Pebble Beach in past years made the cut of the low-65 golfers and ties after three rounds because amateurs were part of the field and they needed to use three courses. Because of COVID-19, the tournament is not allowing amateurs to play this week and thus the cut is made after today’s second round.
Starting on the 10th hole, Schenk reached under par with a birdie on the par-4 17th, but a bogey on the par-4 18th pushed him back to even par. The front nine was rockier for Schenk. He bogeyed the par-4 second, par-3 third, par-3 fifth and the par-4 eighth, tallying a birdie on the par-4 fourth.
Snow stops pair of Illinois games
Illinois girls basketball teams, which had to wait months to play due to COVID-19 restrictions in their state, had to remain patient again this week due to snow.
Lawrenceville and Red Hill, which just started their seasons this past week, had their games postponed Thursday. The Indians were to play their home opener against Flora. The Salukis were to play at Olney.
Red Hill is wasting little time to make it up, going for a 5:15 p.m. (CST) start today with the Tigers. The Salukis are making it a girls-boys doubleheader, with the Red Hill boys tipping off at Olney at 7 p.m. (CST). The junior varsity boys game has been nixed.
Lawrenceville’s game with Flora has been moved to a 6:15 p.m. (CST) start next Wednesday. The matchup still remains the Indians’ home opener.
In Indiana, Rivet’s midweek home game with Washington Catholic was postponed. The two teams are looking at Feb. 26 as a potential make-up date.
