Play was suspended this afternoon during the first round of the AT&T National Pro-Am -- yet, Notre Dame alum Pete Bevacqua (CEO of the PGA of America) and his PGA Tour playing partner Jim Furyk were able to complete play.
Bevacqua and Furyk currently stand in a tie for 17th place with a score of -5 under.
Notre Dame alum and Trustee, Jimmy Dunne and his professional playing partner Smylie Kaufman didn't fare quite as well. They're currently sitting at EVEN par after 17 holes of play -- which puts them in a tie for 117th place. The top 25 teams make the cut for Sunday's final round.
Now, Jimmy must have had a pretty good day on the course -- because Smylie Kaufman was (+6) for the day (with zero birdies) -- and their team score was EVEN PAR, meaning Jimmy quite likely beat his PGA Tour partner today "straight up" at Monterey Peninsula.
Furyk finished (-2) -- meaning Bevacqua contributed three shots to their team score -- they played at Spyglass Hill.
Not a bad day, in bad weather -- for the two DOMERS!
FYI: My brother Jay's boss -- Pat Hamill, CEO of Oakwood Homes is in first place at (-10) with his PGA Tour partner Matt Every.
