BLAINE, Minn. — A promising start to his opening round disappeared on his second nine, and Adam Schenk had to settle for an even-par 71 Thursday at the PGA’s 3M Open.
The Vincennes golfer is seven shots behind early leaders Hideki Matsuyama and Adam Hadwin and will have to battle the cutline today as he attempts to stay for the weekend.
Starting on the 10th hole, Schenk birdied the par-5 12th, the par-4 15th and the par-5 18th to make the turn at 3-under. That under-par score vanquished when he bogeyed the par-4 second and double-bogeyed the par-5 sixth. He birdied the par-3 eighth and bogeyed the par-4 ninth to stay even par.
He starts his second round at 1 p.m. today with Harris English and Bronson Burgoon.
