Rodríguez and Hagy share 54-hole lead at Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio – José de Jesús Rodríguez and Brandon Hagy share the 54-hole lead at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship. A trio of players including Ben Martin, Scottie Scheffler and Scott Harrington sit one stroke off the pace at 8-under 205.

 

Hagy began his third round in calming fashion with pars on his first three holes. The 28-year-old tallied his first birdie of the day at the par-5 fourth and added another at the par-4 seventh. He carded his first bogey of the round on the par-3 eighth but quickly rebounded with a birdie at the ninth to make the turn at 9-under for the week.

 

On his back nine, the Santa Monica, California, native recorded seven pars and one birdie against one bogey to finish the third round tied for the lead at 9-under.

 

“I drove the ball well off the tee again, so it gave me a lot of opportunities to have scoring clubs in,” said Hagy, who hit 10 of 14 fairways on Saturday. “I made some good five‑ to 10‑foot putts to kind of keep it going on the front nine and the beginning of the back nine. Overall, I’m happy with it.”

 

In early 2018, Hagy was sidelined by a hairline fracture in his left wrist that forced him to miss five months of golf. During the 2018-2019 PGA TOUR season, he made just one cut in 13 PGA TOUR starts and missed the cut in his only start on the Korn Ferry Tour earlier this year. After a missed cut at the Travelers Championship in June, he decided to shut down his game and regroup before returning to competition.

 

Last week, Hagy returned to his home state to compete in the Long Beach Open. A T41 finish in California was all he needed to get the competitive drive going again heading into the Korn Ferry Tour Finals.

 

“It was good,” Hagy said of last week’s event. “I hadn’t played in about a month and a half and had several of my friends actually that were playing there. It was a good week to knock the rust off.”

 

Sitting tied atop the leaderboard is José de Jesús Rodríguez who fired a 6-under 65 on Saturday, matching Richy Werenski for the low round of the day. Rodríguez began the third round in a tie for 17th but soared up the leaderboard with birdies on his opening three holes. He carded his lone bogey of the day on the par-3 fifth but rebounded with a birdie on No. 6 to make the turn at 6-under.

 

The 38-year-old continued his strong play into the back nine, carding birdies on Nos. 10 and 12. He added his seventh birdie of the day on his final hole, moving him to 9-under and into a tie for the lead.

 

“Today was a spectacular day,” Rodríguez said. “I was very consistent from start to finish. I hit it good off the tee and had chances on the green. The putts were very good, too.”

 

Rodríguez finished his rookie campaign on the PGA TOUR ranked 177th in the FedExCup standings. The Irapuato, Mexico, native made 10 cuts in 23 starts and recorded three top-25s throughout the season, including a T11 at the Barbasol Championship.

 

Last year, Rodríguez earned his first Korn Ferry Tour title at the United Leasing & Finance Championship. The event was played at Victoria National Golf Club, home of the 2019 Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance. Rodríguez would go on to finish the Regular Season 12th in The 25, earning him his 2018-2019 PGA TOUR card.

 

Entering Sunday’s final round, Rodríguez knows a return to the PGA TOUR is on the line.

 

“I’m going to go do the same thing, you know,” he said. “Keep hitting it straight. I’m going to enjoy the game (and trust that) the score is good.”

 

Ben Martin, Scottie Scheffler and Scott Harrington trail by one stroke after three rounds at the Scarlet Course. Jamie Arnold, Anirban Lahiri, Beau Hossler, Ben Taylor and Viktor Hovland sit just two shots off the lead in a tie for sixth at 7-under 206.

Kevin Dougherty takes 36-hole lead at Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A former Oklahoma State University golfer sits atop the leaderboard at the halfway point of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, but it may not be the cowboy everyone expected. Kevin Dougherty fired a second-round 5-under 66 to take the 36-hole lead at 134 (-8). Brandon Hagy sits alone in second, one stroke back after a final-hole birdie for a 4-under 67. Third at 6-under 136 is Brendon Todd, who shot a 7-under 64, the low round of the day.

 

Overnight co-leaders Viktor Hovland, tied fourth at 137 (-5) and Cameron Percy, tied eighth at 138 (-4), struggled in the afternoon conditions with rounds of 73 and 74, respectively.

 

Dougherty, a 28-year-old from Murrieta, California, began on the 10th hole and notched three birdies on his opening nine, at Nos. 12, 16 and 18, before adding a fourth birdie at No. 4. When his sand-wedge from 117 yards settled less than two feet from the cup on his final hole, he tapped in for birdie and a bogey-free, 5-under 66.

 

After coming in off three missed cuts, Dougherty said his tee shots have been his strength this week.

 

“I think I missed three fairways the first two days and two of them were in the first cut by a foot,” he said. “I’m driving it really good and giving myself really good looks at the holes.”

 

Dougherty, No. 26 at the conclusion of last year’s Korn Ferry Tour Regular Season when he narrowly missed a chip-in birdie on the 72nd hole that would have moved him inside The 25, is at the Korn Ferry Tour Finals this season after finishing the Regular Season at No. 33. His highlight was a runner-up finish at the Wichita Open Supporting Wichita’s Youth where he was eliminated in a five-man playoff won by Henrik Norlander. The following week he tied for third at the Utah Championship presented by Zions Bank.

 

Now that the Regular Season is complete, Dougherty, who got engaged to Lindsay Suchy two weeks ago, feels like it’s nice to have a fresh start this week.

 

“Everyone is at zero so it doesn’t matter what we did from January in the Bahamas until now,” he said. “Then again, these events are really important, so there’s just as much on the line for sure.”

 

Brandon Hagy, on the comeback trail after being sidelined by a hairline fracture of his left wrist that kept him out of the game for five months in 2018, mixed five birdies with three bogeys and an eagle at the par-5 sixth hole to move into solo-second, one stroke back of Dougherty.

 

“I never dealt with taking five months off before,” he said. “I had some flashes of some good golf last summer on this tour, which gave me some confidence.”

 

This season on the PGA TOUR, Hagy made one cut in the 13 events he played, advancing to the weekend at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego, eventually finishing in a tie for 66th. His lone Korn Ferry Tour start was a missed cut at the Knoxville Open.

 

“It’s a fine line out there (on the PGA TOUR),” he added. “I think I missed like six or seven cuts by one shot, which you’re not really playing that bad on that tour if you’re missing a cut by one shot. So, I’ve just been trying to stay positive, keep reinforcing the good stuff. It’s a lot easier said than done, for sure, but I think I can do it.”

 

The best move of the day came from PGA TOUR winner Brendon Todd, who closed with four straight birdies to shoot 7-under 64 in the early wave and sit third at 136 (-6). Todd, who began the tournament with a double bogey on Thursday when his opening tee shot ended up just inches over the out-of-bounds line and sat tied 65th, credited his jump of 62 spots on the leaderboard to improved ball-striking.

 

“It’s a good golf course for me because it is difficult and there’s some strategy involved, because the holes are so tight and there’s so many doglegs,” he said. “From that standpoint, being a shorter hitter but somebody who kind of places the ball, it’s a pretty good track for me.”

 

Todd had struggled with his game for several years before seeing notable improvement this year, making the cut in seven of 11 PGA TOUR starts. Before those 11 starts in the 2018-19 PGA TOUR season, the only cut he’d made in his 20 previous starts was a tie for 70th at the 2017 AT&T Byron Nelson, the tournament he won in 2014 for his lone PGA TOUR title.

 

“I really built a lot of momentum this year and I feel ready to compete out here,” he said. “These finals are really all about having that great week. I look at each week as a one‑week race to the top. If you can win or cash in on the top three, you can get back on the PGA TOUR, and that’s kind of what this is all about for me.”

 

Scott Harrington, who finished solo-second at last week’s WinCo Foods Portland Open presented by KraftHeinz to move to No. 19 and earn a PGA TOUR card, birdied five of his last six holes for 67 to sit tied fourth with Hovland, Ben Taylor and Ben Martin at 5-under 137.

The 36-hole cut came at 1-over 143 with 75 professionals advancing to the weekend.

FRIDAY NOTES:

* Friday’s weather: Partly cloudy, with a high of 85. Wind SW at 7-14 mph.

* The cut came at 1-over with 75 players advancing to the weekend.

* Kevin Dougherty holds the 36-hole lead for the first time in his Korn Ferry Tour career. Last season at the WinCo Foods Portland Open presented by KraftHeinz, Dougherty missed a chip on his 72nd hole by inches that would have secured his first PGA TOUR card.

* Through two rounds, Dougherty ranks T1 in putts per green in regulation with 58 putts on 32 greens. The 28-year-old also ranks second in driving accuracy having hit 23 of 28 fairways.

* Hagy sits alone in second place through 36 holes for the second time in his Korn Ferry Tour career. At the 2016 United Leasing & Finance Championship, Hagy was second through two rounds before finishing T36.

* Brendon Todd (3rd/-6) fired the low round of the day, posting a 7-under 64 on Friday. Todd is making his fifth start in Columbus and first since 2013.

* Entering the 2018-19 PGA TOUR season, Todd had made just five cuts in his previous 44 starts. This season, he made seven cuts in 11 starts, and now has a chance to secure his 2019-20 PGA TOUR card.

* Five of 24 second-round leaders/co-leaders have gone on to win this season, most recently Kristoffer Ventura at the Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Chevrolet.

* Scott Harrington (T4/-5) is the only player from The 25 within three shots of the lead. Harrington birdied five of his last six holes to close his second round. Last week, Harrington secured his first PGA TOUR card with a solo-second at the WinCo Foods Portland Open presented by KraftHeinz.

* Defending champion Robert Streb (T8/-4) sits four strokes off the lead through two rounds. Streb defeated Peter Malnati in a playoff at the Scarlet Course last season.

* After 36 holes, first round co-leaders Viktor Hovland and Cameron Percy sit T4 and T8, respectively.

* This week’s purse is $1,000,000, with $180,000 going to the champion. The winner will also receive 1,000 Korn Ferry Tour Points.

* It is estimated that players with 200 or more Korn Ferry Tour Points at the conclusion of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship presented by United Leasing & Finance will secure a 2019-20 PGA TOUR card.

* The par-4 14th hole (473 yards) ranked as the toughest hole on the course Friday with a scoring average of 4.276.

* The par-5 12th hole (562 yards) ranked as the easiest hole on Friday. The hole played to an average of 4.500 and yielded four eagles and 66 birdies.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Viktor Hovland and Cameron Percy fired matching 7-under 64s to claim the first-round lead at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship. Doug Ghim sits one stroke behind after posting a 6-under 65, while Matthew NeSmith trails by two after an opening-round 66.

 

Hovland did not show any nerves in his Korn Ferry Tour debut. The 21-year-old recorded birdies on three of his first seven holes and made the turn at 3-under for the round.

 

Hovland caught fire with an eagle at the par-5 12th, moving him to 5-under. He carded his only bogey of the day at the par-4 14th but rebounded with birdies on his final three holes to post an opening-round 7-under 64.

 

“This course could be pretty hard, and a lot of the pins were kind of tucked in,” Hovland said. “I finally got some good looks and finally made a birdie on No. 4 and a nice putt on No. 5 to kind of get kick‑started. I made three really nice putts to finish and hopefully that will keep me going for the rest of the week.”

 

Hovland enters the Korn Ferry Tour Finals after a summer to remember. The highly touted Oklahoma State University alum recorded five top-16 finishes in six PGA TOUR starts between June and early August including a T12 at the U.S. Open as an amateur. He earned his best result as a professional with a solo-fourth at the Wyndham Championship two weeks ago.

 

Despite his impressive stretch, Hovland fell 67 FedExCup points short of earning his PGA TOUR card. He now looks to capture a spot in The Finals 25 and secure his place on TOUR for the 2019-20 season.

 

“I’ve played well,” Hovland said of his summer. “I think most of all the fact that I’ve been so consistent every week. I haven’t had one fourth and then two missed cuts and then one 25th or 18th. The fact that I’ve made all the cuts that I’ve been playing in, that gives me even more confidence. I feel like in the [Korn Ferry Tour] Finals, if you just play consistently good golf, that should get the job done.”

 

Tied with Hovland atop the leaderboard is Cameron Percy. The veteran began his round with three consecutive pars but tallied birdies on four of his next six holes. Percy vaulted up the leaderboard after holing his approach shot from 183 yards for eagle at the par-4 11th. He closed his round with two birdies and a bogey over his final seven holes, earning him a share of the lead.

 

“I just hauled off a 6‑iron and it looked like it went really close,” Percy said of his approach on No. 11. “The cameraman sort of made a, ‘Whoa!’ I thought, oh, it must be pretty close. We got up there and we were looking, and the cameraman goes, ‘No, it went in.’ We had no idea.”

 

Percy, who is making only his 11th Korn Ferry Tour start this season, has recorded two top-10s and five top-25s in 2019. The 45-year-old suffered a wrist injury earlier this year while on vacation with his family.

 

“I’ve played three events in four months, I think,” Percy recalled. “I just haven’t played any golf. I fractured my wrist earlier in the year, I was really struggling to start off just getting in the rhythm of playing golf again.”

 

The injury left Percy sidelined for all of April and May, but he still managed to finish the Regular Season ranked 58th in The 25. Despite the setback, the Australian still has his sights set on a return to the PGA TOUR.

 

Sitting alone in third place is Doug Ghim who opened with a 6-under 65 on Thursday. Ghim won the 2018 Ben Hogan Award as the top male college golfer while at the University of Texas. The 23-year-old has made six PGA TOUR starts this season and is in search of his first PGA TOUR card.

 

 

THURSDAY NOTES:

* Thursday’s weather: Partly cloudy, with a high of 85. Wind W/NW at 7-14 mph, gusting to 18 mph.

* Doug Ghim (3rd/65) came into the week off three consecutive missed cuts, using three different caddies in his last five events. His caddie this week, Micah Fugitt, also caddied for him when he sat fourth through 54 holes at the PGA TOUR’s Farmers Insurance Open earlier this year, eventually finishing T20.

* Matthew NeSmith (4th/66) finished T2 at the NCAA Columbus Regional as a University of South Carolina freshman when the Ohio State University Club – Scarlet Course hosted the event in 2013. NeSmith shot a career-low 63 two weeks ago in the opening round of the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae and tied that score in the second round to hold a two-stroke lead through 36 holes, eventually finishing T8 for his third top-10 on the season.

* India’s Anirban Lahiri (T5/67) was 2-over after five holes, but rallied with six birdies, including his final two holes, to be one of three international players at 4-under or better (Hovland/Norway, Percy/Australia).

* Julian Etulain (T19/69) aced the 205-yard 17th hole with a 5-iron, the first on No. 17 in tournament history. It marks the seventh hole-in-one at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship (most recent, J.J. Spaun/R3/2016) and the 18th on the Korn Ferry Tour this season.

* Kevin Chappell (T84/73) returned to the tournament where he made his professional debut in 2008, finishing T40 that week. Chappell, who has been recovering from microdiscectomy surgery, last competed at the PGA TOUR’s 2018 Mayakoba Golf Classic.

* This week’s purse is $1,000,000, with $180,000 going to the champion. The winner will also receive 1,000 Korn Ferry Tour Points.
