Arturo is -8 after 12 holes.  He's tearin' it up!

Hemmeline in with a -9 59.  One hell of a round!

Most of the guys in the top 20 have played this course a few times.  Not bad for a Withrop Gold Rookie   ;D.  Guess he won't have to worry about qualifying for '09.

Congrats to all local players who made it out.  You've made KC proud!

Not so quick folks.  The final standings show Arturo placing 17th but the PDGA number #20020 next to Arturo's name is actually Kris Orrick's number.  :-P

That is because the PDGA site has an issue with Arturo.  He magic

They;ve got a bunch of mismatched names and PDGA numbers on the PDGA site, not just Arturo's.

As anyone who has ever played the Winthrop Gold Course during the USDGC will attest, the course's design makes one have to think and usually pucker on just about every shot. Yes, natural purists may condemn the course's reliance on rope, mandos, bamboo fences, and so forth,  but the result is a ever-challenging course that tests much more than a golfer's ability to throw far. Every weakness--be it mental, physical, or emotional, will be exposed at the USDGC.

I couldn'tbe happier for Arturo or more impressed. To make his first appearance ever at a major and finish in the top 20 puts him in very rare company. Though I aware of that old saying about there being, "lies, damn lies, and statistics," take a look at this stat. After shooting a first round of +3 71, Arturo finished the tournament with rounds of 64, 62, and 58 for a total of 20 under 184. There were only 8 players who shot better than that during the final three rounds:
Avery Jenkins    173
 Nathan Doss      175
Dean Tannock    179
David Feldberg    180
Josh Anthon    180
Ken Climo        182
Steven Rico    182
JohnE McCray    183

Again, a very impressive performance.

Also congrats to Dave Hemmeline for his 59 during the last round which moved him from tied for 67th to 45th place cash. Speaking of cash, I don't really like the way the USDGC top loads the winner's portion. I'd prefer a much flatter curve. Not that Arturo's 1250 for T17 is bad, but it could have been better.

Congrats to Pete Cashen also—he not only made the cut, but he shot better each round, shooting par the last time out.

One last stat—out of nearly 700 rounds, there were only 18 in the 50s...Arturo and Dave among them.

here's another fun fact that maceman said during the audio show

i think he said that #12 had been eagled only 12-15 times this year...Arturo eagled it 3 out of 4 times.  i'd say he had that hole's number.

Pretty poor guessing on Maceman's part. I guess his fact checker was taking a break when he said that. It took me five minutes to check the round by round scores to learn there were a total of 79 3s on hole 12: R1-22, R2-17, R3-15, R4-25. It would take a bit more time to find out see if others did as well as Arturo did or better.
