Utah Golf: On the first day of the fan-free tour, the Oakridge trio played well.

FERMINGTON – It could be just a friendly round on Thursday morning between three club members at Oakridge Country Club, Daniel Summerhais, Cole Punch and Preston Summerhaus. The trio were there for four and a half hours on their own, except for their own caddies and a handful of followers.

During the first round of the Corn Ferry Tour Utah Championships, the three following galleries didn’t double down anywhere after three to six media members and a few volunteers took action, even though it was different.

“I played really well, I made my goal – I wanted to make five birdies and I got it, I added a few booze there. I’m pretty happy not to play the tournament for a total of six months. I definitely felt nervous and competitive again.” – Daniel Summerhais

Due to the Cavid-19 epidemic, no fans were allowed to watch the golf tournament at Oakgridge, and most of the trio’s family members were able to encourage them from afar at certain locations around the golf course.

With Daniel Summerhais and Punich in the s9s and 70 Preston Summerhais in the s9s, they are nowhere near the lead when they are all giving equal shots, including Stefan Jaiser, 31, of Germany and Halef, a 22-year-old former UNLV golfer from England. Who both shot 8-under-par 63 shots. Former champions Josh Titter (2009), TJ Vogel, Ryan Ruffles, Kyle Jones and Chandler Blanchett each fired four shots, with four golfers scoring 655 runs. A huge team of 20 golfers stood at 66 runs.

The action continues on Friday with the cut of the short 65 golfers plus team coming down to play on Saturday and Sunday

It’s been a wonderful week for Daniel Summerhais, as his tour of the course in which he grew up is playing his final tournament as a professional golfer. He has decided to hang on to his golf shoes and become a schoolteacher / golf coach at a nearby Davis High School earlier this fall.

Summerhays can’t even follow his wife Emily this year, instead of the 500-person gallery he enjoyed when he finished sixth in the same tournament last year. “My wife is dying and she can’t walk with me,” he said

Instead he and the couple’s four children were fenced along Shepard Lane and a few places in the backyard next to the course where he got a glimpse. As Daniel walked, one of the kids raised a sign that read, “We’re with you every step of the way.”

Daniel said of his wife, “It’s not easy to try to coil 12 and kids on a busy street side -” he said.

Summer began with a push, with the 25-foot birdie at No. 1 circling several extended family members watching from a distance. But he dug the next hole and finished nine in front of him equal to the front. The birdies behind him at No. 2 and No. 3 have leveled him and he is No. Added another bird to number 5 which has a boogie at number 5.

“I played really well. I made my goal – I wanted to make five birdies and I got it, I added a few booze there, “he said.” Overall I’m pretty happy not to play in the tournament for six months. I definitely felt nervous and competitive again. “

Punich played for the BIU golf team earlier this week and qualified for his first major professional tournament by shooting a 633 earlier this week in Monday’s qualifiers at Talons Cove GC.

He filled the first hole before returning equal with Birdie in hole number, he no. No. 2 and No. 2 went 2-under with birdies, then 18 feet.

“I got off at a slower pace with Putter, after that I hit the ball great all day, executed and played quite hard,” Punich said. “The pairing was fun. I really enjoyed playing with the two boys, I really know. “

Seventeen-year-old Preston Summerhaus, the two-time defending champion of the Utah State of America, had an inconsistency with the first four birdies and a double booze, then made a boogie, then reel eight purses straight into the second nine.

Last year, when he was also playing in the sponsor discount case, the young Summerhais just missed the cut with 733 on the second day.
