Summerhays Finishes in Top 30 at Northern Trust; Blake Tops Utahns, But Not in Title Contentio
For the third day in a row Daniel Summerhays eagled his first hole of the day at the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California. Those three eagles accounted for six under par and he played all the other holes at two over par which gave him a four under par 72-hole tally which was good enough for a top 30 finish.
He started his third round on the back nine and eagled the tenth hole. His other two eagles came on the first hole.
On the Champions Tour in Florida Jay Don Blake led the trio of Utahns in the tournament with a score of 70-74-73-217, but he was never in title contention and finished in the middle of the pack. Mike Reid was two shots back of Blake with rounds of 71-73-75-219, and Dan Forsman shot 72-76-77-225.
