AT&T National Pro Am -- Domer Update

Notre Dame alums; Jimmy Dunne (Trustee), Pete Bevacqua (CEO, PGA of America) and Condoleezza Rice (former Secretary of State) just finished Day 2 at the AT&T National Pro Am with their professional playing partners...

Dunne and Smylie Kaufman (PGA Tour player) had a great day going (-7) under at Spyglass Hill Golf Course moving up 67 spots to a tie for 62nd. Meanwhile, Bevacqua and Jim Furyk carded a (-4) under score at Pebble Beach which dropped them ten spots into a tie for 31st place.  While Condi Rice and her PGA Tour playing partner Jason Bohn were at (-1) today, when play was suspended -- with five holes yet to play.  They're currently sitting in 135th place...

They're all chasing Jordan Spieth and his playing partner who lead the team event at (-15) under after two days.

The current CUT LINE is at (-10) -- the top 25 teams will play on Sunday -- so Dunne, Bevacqua and Rice have some work to do.

The Domers are playing well.  Bevacqua's Tour partner Jim Furyk is EVEN PAR on his own ball and their team score is ten shots better at (-10).  Dunne's Tour partner Kaufman is (+8) over par on his own ball, yet their team score is 15 shots better at (-7).  Rice's Tour partner Bohn is (+2), and their team score is 3 shots better...

Saturday should be fun for Jimmy Dunne -- he's playing in a foursome with Phil Mickelson at Pebble Beach -- in a group right ahead of tournament leader Jordan Spieth.  Big galleries -- plenty of TV time.

Golic to Take One for the Team -- Next Tuesday

Notre Dame alum Mike Golic had a bet with MSU's Magic Johnson about the Fighting Irish's game vs. Sparty this past fall...

Unfortunately -- Golic lost the bet.
