Afternoon Update: Former Badger Jon Turcott shot a 3-under par 67 today in the second round of the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee and is currently tied for 50th place at -2. Turcott started his round playing wonderfully, recording birdies on five of his first 10 holes to get to 4-under for the tournament. Bogeys on the par 4 fourth hole (Turcott’s 13th of the round) and as well as one on his final hole, the par 4 ninth, put him at 3-under for the day.
Dan Woltman, a current member of the Wisconsin golf team and the only amateur in the field, shot a 1-under par 69 in today’s round. His two round tournament total of 141 is 1-over par. The projected cut line is 1-under. Like Turcott, Woltman started on the back nine and made a charge. After a birdie on No. 18 (his ninth hole of the day), Woltman was 3-under on his round and 1-under for the tournament. He gave a shot back on his 10th hole (No. 1) to fall back to even then bogeyed No. 7 (his 16th of the day) to finish at 1-over for the tournament.
UW men’s golf coach Jim Schuman, who entered the day tied with Woltman at +2, didn’t get off to the same sort of start as the other two Badgers. Teeing off on No. 1, Schuman was +4 on the day and 6-over for the tournament after a bogey on No. 10. He settled down to play his final eight holes in 2-under par, birdieing Nos. 15 and 18.
Half of the golfers are still on the course. First-round leader Richard S. Johnson shot a 3-under 67 to improve to 10-under on the tournament and hold a share of the 36-hole lead. He’s tied with Nick Flanagan, whose 7-under round of 63 is the day’s best thus far. Once all the golfers are done for the day, look for a complete recap on uwbadgers.com.
