In Historic First; Summerhays, Finau in Same Pairing in PGA Tour Event
In a historic first for the PGA Tour and Utah golf: two former state amateur champions are paired in the same grouping in a PGA Tour event, and in addition to that they played against each other in the Utah State Am championship match in 2006 at Soldier Hollow Golf Course.
This is the first time they have played against each other in a PGA Tour event.
Daniel Summerhays and Tony Finau are playing in the same threesome at the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club today. They tee off at 9:57 Utah time. They are currently tied in 11th place and are only four shots off the lead.
Summerhays and Finau played each other in the championship match of the Utah State Am in 2006 at Soldier Hollow. Finau won the match 2 and 1. Summerhays won the Utah State title in 2000 and 2001.
Another former Utah State Amateur champion, Zac Blair, played in the tournament, but missed the cut.
The tournament is being telecast on the Golf Channel beginning at 11 am and on Channel 2 beginning at 1 pm.
