Jordan's First Pro Event
Updated: Aug 21, 2019
BATH, MICHIGAN - Jordan Bohannon shook off the rust of not playing competitive golf since graduating college in May carding a one over par 73 at the Hawk Hollow Open at Hawk Hollow Golf Club. The tournament took place as a part of the Michigan Players Tour which holds events every weekend throughout the summer.
Jordan finished tied for 6th only six strokes behind the first place winning score of 67. Jordan showed improvement in numerous areas of his game and was able to grind out a one over par score when he easily could have shot four or five strokes worse. He has been concentrating on accuracy and distance control with his wedges in to greens, as well as his scramble game from around the greens.
Perhaps Jordan's biggest success of the day was his ability to play both the par 4's and par 5's bogey free and 1 under a piece. Sixteen of his eighteen holes resulted in either birdies or pars. Unfortunately, he dumped two balls in the water on two of the more challenging par 3's on the course resulting in two double bogeys. Jordan was attempting fades to play away from the water but blocked both shots away from his target line that cost him dearly. Jordan was solid on the greens all day with only 29 putts, no 3 putts, and several 1 putts to save par along with his 3 birdies. Jordan was the only player in the field to birdie the 17th hole. The 17th was a long par 3 and attempting another slight fade, he executed it perfectly placing the ball inside 5 feet of the hole for his final birdie of the round. Jordan had a solid finish seeing the course for the first time and competing for the first time in months. He plans to continue his progress and get in contention in future events.
