A War on Marshfield
Players Fought Golf Course and Weather in Stroke Play Series #2
- Marshfield, Mass.
Shawn Warren, PGA (Falmouth CC) made four birdies and one bogey to shoot a three under par 67 to take the top spot in the NEPGA’s second Stroke Play Series Event of the season on Wednesday at Marshfield Country Club in Marshfield, Mass.
Warren started out very strong from the first tee. After hitting a monstrous tee shot to about ten yards from the edge of the green, he chipped on, one-putted and made birdie on the hole. He would make another birdie on the fifth hole and a bogey on six to make the turn at one under. Warren would continue his strong play on the back, and made two more birdies on 11 and 16 to finish three under.
The course today seemed to play pretty tough. Many players said the greens were pretty fast, even after the rain last night, and the weather delay. Only 2 professionals shot under par for the day.View More
