HADLEY LEADS FOUR JACKETS INTO WEEKEND AT VEGAS

Chesson Hadley continued a solid early start on the 2021-22 PGA Tour, tying for 27th last weekend at the Shriners Children’s Open in Las Vegas. The newly-minted Georgia Tech Hall of Famer opened with a 64 and finished at 12-under-par 272, tying for 27th place.

He led a group of four Yellow Jackets to make the cut at TPC Summerlin, including Matt Kuchar, who tied for 35th (273, -11), Richy Werenski, who tied for 47th (276 (-8) and Cameron Tringale, who tied for 56th (277, -7).

Seth Reeves and Stewart Cink both missed the cut.

Cink will remain in Las Vegas this week for The CJ Cup at Summit, where he and Tringale are the only Jackets in the limited, 78-man field.

DUVAL RETURNS TO GOLF ROOTS AT FURYK & FRIENDA CHARITY EVENT

David Duval has returned periodically to the Timuquana Country Club where he grew up learning to play golf.

Saturday was a bit different: he was hitting shots on the course that counted … not to the results of the Constellation Furyk & Friends PGA Tour Champions event.

That will come next year.

But the shots Duval hit with three Hall of Fame athletes during the Furyk & Friends Celebrity Challenge for Charity counted towards a bigger picture than a golf tournament.

Duval, a 13-time PGA Tour winner, the 1999 Players champion and 2001 Open champion, teamed up with former Pittsburgh Steelers star Lynn Swann against World Golf Hall of Fame member Annika Sorenstam and former St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Ozzie Smith in a nine-hole scramble in which $100,000 was designated for either K9s for Warriors (the Duval-Swann charity) or Wolfson Children’s Hospital (Sorenstam and Smith).
