Eric Nielsen was on fired today shooting an impressive 39 on the front and a 40 on the back. His 80 put him in the top 3 golfers of the tournament. Nielsen was up and down for par on almost every hole. On 16 he made a punch cut shot from the trees that enabled him to go up and down for one of his 12 pars on the day.
Brendan Lenhard shot the next best with a 91. Lenard parred 4 out of 5 of his last holes.
Andrew Hoesman added a 93. Hoesman sunk a 25 footer on hole 13 to give him his only birdie on the day.
