Summerhays in Contention through 36 holes at PGA Golf Club
Through 36 holes and headed into Tuesday at PGA Golf Club, Joe Summerhays is in contention at the 2021 PGA Professional Championship
Making his fifth start at the PGA Professional Championship, Joe Summerhays is in a great position at the halfway point. The Utah native is three-under for the Championship heading into Tuesday's third round, after starting with back to back 70's at PGA Golf Club.
During his first round, on the Ryder Course, the 49 year old was one-under on the Par 71 layout. Starting his day early on Monday, playing on the Wanamaker course, Summerhays went two-under in his second round.
His second round was highlighted by three birdies in his first eight holes, as he finished the front nine two-under-par, and went even-par on the back nine.
Joe has missed the cut in his last two starts at the PGA Professional Championship, in 2018 and 2019. However, the 2020 Utah PGA Section Player of the Year is hitting his stride.
In his first start at the Championship, in 2016, Summerhays finished T10 and punched his ticket to the 2016 PGA Championship. Through 36 holes at the 2021 edition he's in a wonderful position to earn another start.
