“It started out pretty slow, I put one in the water on 2, I made a couple bogeys on the front nine and it took a little while to get into first gear,” Weil reflected. “Making a two from 120 yards on 17 always helps the score.”
Weil notched a blemish-free back nine. In his last appearance in the Open, Weil finished t-19th at Knickerbocker Country Club in 2020.
“Today I watched a few putts drop and it’s a bit of a cycle at that point. Once you start getting your confidence, the more putts start dropping. Going to the Ridge, keep the confidence that I found on the back nine, try to keep that going from the start and get out to a better start.”
The low 9 players (+ ties) have advanced to the championship at The Ridge at Back Brook from July 25-27, with the cut being 2-over par (72).
