A final round of one under par 71 sees Padraig finish in a tie for 14th place at the Boeing Classic. He got off to a slow start with an early dropped shot on the par four 3rd hole but got that back at the par five 8th hole. A double bogey five on the par three 9th hole had him out in two over par and treading water. Another shot went at the 10th before a grandstand finish of four birdies in his last eight holes including two deuces on the short holes had him signing for his 71. Fifteen under par won the event!
A three under par round of 69 sees Padraig in a tie for 12th place and five shots behind the leader going into Sundays final round at the Boeing Classic. He got off to a nice start with a birdie at his opening hole but two dropped shots followed to be one over par after six holes. He then produced three birdies in a row to end off the nine and turn in two under par. Further birdies followed at the par four 12th and 14th holes before a final dropped shot at the short par three 17th hole. He will need a low round Sunday to contend!
Padraig opens his account at the Boeing Classic with a two under par round of 70 which is just three behind the leader. In a rollar coaster round, he made his first par at the 9th hole and only made six pars in total! He got off to the dream start with a couple of opening birdies before trading four bogies with two more birdies to be out in level par. He dropped another shot at the par four 11th hole but saved the best until last with three birdies in his last five holes. All to play for as we head into the weekend!
