Padraig opens his account with a two under par round of 70 at the SAS Championship. He got off to a very steady start with ten straight pars before dropping a shot at the par three 11th hole. He hit back with back to back birdies on the 14th and 15th holes where he holed a couple of nice putts. A dropped shot followed on the 16th but he managed to eagle the par five 17th after taking advantage of his length off the tee, to hit the green in two shots. Five under par leads after the opening round.
Padraig plays this week on the PGA Seniors Tour at the SAS Championship. It is being played in Cary, North Carolina in the USA.
