PGA TOUR UPDATE

Richy Werenski collected 12 birdies against one bogey during his second round last weekend at the ZOZO Championship at Sherwood, posting a course-record 61 (-11) at Sherwood Country Club (see three of his birdies below). The hot round followed an opening 72, but the former Tech star could not sustain that over the weekend with rounds off 72-76, and he tied for 57th place at 281 (-7) for the tournament.

By contrast, Matt Kuchar broke par in all four rounds to finish at 280 (-8) and tie for 54th.

The PGA Tour moves all the way across the United States and them some this week as seven former Yellow Jackets gather in Southampton, Bermuda for the Bermuda Championship. Safeway Open champion Stewart Cink is back in action along with Chesson Hadley, Cameron Tringale and Vincent Whaley. Cink is one of four major champions playing in Bermuda for the first time, joining Padraig Harrington (Open Championship), Danny Willett (Masters) and Jason Dufner (PGA Championship).

Ollie Schniederjans, who plays on the Korn Ferry Tour but is off until January, and his younger brother Luke, who recently turned pro, have both received spots in the field in Bermuda. Luke lost a playoff in a bid to win a GPro Tour event in his professional debut two weeks ago, carding a 59 in the second round of that event.

Seth Reeves became the seventh Jacket in the field when he won the Monday qualifying event held at Orange County National, firing a 63.
