Williams Outside The Cutline At Web.com Event
July 27, 2012
SEATTLE - Chris Williams' 2012 Web.com debut has apparently came to an end at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational as he sits at +1 through 36 holes, two strokes outside of the projected cutline.
Sixty-two golfers were 1-under or better when inclement weather hit OSU's Scarlet Course in Columbus, Ohio, stranding about half of the field still on the course. The second round will continue Saturday morning.
One golfer that appears safely in the clubhouse is former Husky All-American Alex Prugh. Prugh shot 2-under 69 a day after firing a 68. He is tied for 11th at -5 overall.
Williams earned an exemption for the event along with 10 other PING First Team All-Americans. He had to complete Thursday's first round early on Friday after inclement weather forced a halt in play. Williams shot 72-71.
Incoming freshman Jonathan Sanders wrapped up the Pacific Coast Amateur Championship at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort on Friday and finished tied for 15th. Sanders shot 1-over 73 on the Bandon Dunes course -- his third-straight round in the low 70's. He ended up +12 overall (80-72-71-73-296) and finished ahead of many more experienced golfers with collegiate experience.
On the PGA Tour, former All-American UW teammates Richard Lee and Nick Taylor are competing in the RBC Canadian Open. Lee ended up making the cut by finishing the first 36 holes at 3-under 137. Lee shot a 3-under 67 on Friday after and even par 70 on Thursday. Lee is eight shots off the lead established by Scott Piercy.
Taylor missed the cut and finished 9-over after shooting 75 and 74.
