Great playing in the Rocky Mountain Section PGA National Qualifier by Paul Weyland Golf student Jake Slocum.
In the first round Jake had some putting issues but managed to post a 2 under par 70. That put him 5 back of Carson Barry, incoming freshman on the Oregon State Men’s Golf team, and 4 back of Sam Tidd, incoming freshman on the Oklahoma Men’s Golf team.
On day two, in windy conditions, Jake shot the low round of the day posting a 7 under par 65 for a two day total of 9 under par. That put Jake in a sudden death playoff with Tidd for the second qualifying spot. Tidd won on the 3rd playoff hole with a birdie to earn his spot with Barry.
Jake was very disappointed he didn’t qualify, but he proved to himself that when he needed to post a number to give himself a chance in a qualifier he could do it. Very proud of Jake!
