Disappointing PGA Championship for Padraig as he fails to make the cut at a brutally tough Bethpage Black golf course. His second round of 77 gave him a twelve over par total with the cut line being four over par. He again missed too many fairways off the tee, which led to five bogies and two double bogies. Interestingly he birdied two of the par three holes, holing two nice putts in the process. The defending champion, Brooks Koepka, blazes the trail with his record-breaking twelve under par total leading the field a merry dance by seven shots heading into the weekend.
Padraig opened his account at the PGA Championship with a five under par round of 75. He covered the more scorable front nine in one over par after swapping two bogies with one birdie on the par four 6th hole. The back nine was a grind with four bogies, all caused by visits to the unforgiving rough and not one birdie to offset the damage. He tees off early at 7.40am in the second round.
Padraig is at the infamous Bethpage Black golf course in New York to play in the second Major of the year, the PGA Championship. As a past winner, he tees it up this week full of confidence after a morale-boosting finish last week. The course this week is extremely tough, playing very long after recent rain has soaked the layout. He tees off at 1.06pm local time with Martin Kaymer and Keegan Bradley, both winners of this prestigious tournament.
