Brendon Todd has his way with Proehlific Club at Forest Oaks in Greensboro, N.C., in today's open qualifier for the Wyndham Championship, turning in a bogey-free, 31-30=61, five strokes lower than the other 91 golfers that posted scores.
Indeed, Todd's effort was prolific. It was of Secretariat proportions, even for a four-spotter. Paired with Vaughn Taylor in the final twosome of the day off the 10th tee, Todd birdied 10, 11, 13, 15 and 18. After the turn, he added birdies at Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7. (Taylor shot 71.) A five-man playoff among those at 6-under 66 determined the final three berths into the tournament proper. Billy Mayfair (34-32; 8 birdies, 2 bogeys) survived along with former PGA TOUR members Kyle Reifers (bogey-free 32-34; 6 birdies) and Andrew McLardy (bogey-free 35-31; 6 birdies). Former PGA TOUR member Wil Collins (34-32; 1 eagle, 6 birdies, 2 bogeys) and Bruce McDonald (bogey-free 34-32; 6 birdies) failed to qualify in what was the last four-spotter of the 2013 season. The field at Sedgefield Country Club is now complete at 156.
