Poor couple of rounds with Brendan Steele at the Zurich classic TEAM FORMAT: Round 1 and 3 are Four-Ball (Best-Ball) and Rounds 2 and 4 are Foursomes (Alternate Shot).

1ST round they were both hitting birdies and bogies on the same holes and could only manage 2 under.
2ND round they managed a triple bogie on the 6th and finished even for the round.
The cut will be about 8 under.

Luke off to a bad start in the Byron Nelson, +5 and 148th. His GIR stat is still low at 44%.

2nd round was better. GIR Stat up to 61% and 4 birdies with 2 bogies. Unlikely to make the cut as at present that puts him at 129th.

Does anyone know whether he's fighting his GIR problem with a swing coach? I can't imagine he could be tolerant of it, as if he thinks it will turn around just by playing...

I had forgotten he was playing in the Memorial this weekend.
His GIR Stats were up, 55.5% for rd1 and 61% for rd2 but his stroes gained was better in the 1st round. He is tied 65th on +1 and has made the cut.

RBC Canadian Open , another Open qualier, starts today and Luke had a bit of an average round. He started on the 10th and was -3 at the turn and then managed to spoil it by getting 2 bogies on the front 9. So -1 going into tomorrow and his GIR Stat was 72% and strokes gained (putting) was 2.
Adam Schenk was -4 at the end of his round.

Luke missed the cut by 2 shots. His second round consisted of 4 bogies and 3 birdies with a GIR stat of 50%.
Adan Schenk was -6 at the end of his round.
There were a few really low scores in this round:- Snedeker -10, Silverman -9, Brown & Kuchar -7 and some on -6.

4 birdies and 3 bogies for a rounf of -1 leaving him at level par. His GIR stat was 56%. He is getting the birdies but having far too many bogies.

Rocket Mortgage Classic
1st round looks good. 6 birdies and 1 bogey with GIR of 77.8 and Strokes gained 2.68.
The course seems relatively easy as there are 121 under par and -5 only gets you tied 24th.

And another solid round, but with a somewhat silly three put on the closing hole.
Let's move to the right direction on moving day ;)

Mediocre 3rd round 3 birdies and 3 bogies and will drop a lot of places. His GIR was good at 83% but his putting must have been off as his strokes gained was -1.26.

4 th round was pretty average 1xdouble bogey, 1 x bogey and 4 x birdies to give him a final score of -9. It would seem like a good score but it only finished him in tied at 46th. His GIR for the round was 88.9% but strokes gained was -1.74.
