“It was a lot of fun out there,” Hurley said. “I really only made one mistake … playing good any day is good.”
Hurley wasn’t the only one with a low score on Saturday at the crowd-less Congressional Country Club.
Six golfers, Tiger Woods, Bo Van Pelt, Chez Reavie, Greg Owen, John Huh and Sean O’Hair, finished 4-under for the day.
“Any time you can go on Congressional without making a bogey, you’re pretty happy,” said Van Pelt on his 67.
An unusual second cut
With 80 golfers making the weekend, coupled with the severe weather and damages to the course, there was a second cut at the conclusion of Saturday’s round.
The top-70 will move on to play Sunday. The plan is to tee off at 11:00 a.m. at the first and tenth tees, similar to Saturday. The delay is to ensure the course gets as much debris removed as possible.
Notables who missed the second cut include amateur Beau Hossler and Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III.
