Jordan shoots a career low in LA
Updated: Aug 21, 2019
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - Jordan used a final round 66 to march up the leaderboard and into a tie for 7th place in the final Advocates Tour event of the season. The tournament took place at the historic Chester Washington Golf Course in Los Angeles, California. Jordan continued his impressive play on the West Coast at Chester Washington. Jordan's first round wasn't his best. However, he was able to grind out an even par 70 that featured 4 birdies and some timely par saves on the back nine. Jordan turned up the heat in his second round with six birdies, an eagle, and only twenty three putts on the day. Jordan's second round was one of the lowest rounds of the entire tournament and a new career low. He was six under par with three holes to play. A double on sixteen and a bogey on seventeen prevented a great round from being an even better one. With more experience, J.Bo will learn how to finish off his good rounds the same way he grinds out his bad ones. In a field of over ninety participants, Jordan's four under total placed him in a tie for seventh place.
Chester Washington's unique layout featured only two par 5's with both coming on the second nine. Thus, par on the front was only 34 while par on the back was 36. The venue is also historic in that it honors Charlie Sifford, the first African American golfer to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
Jordan will now return to Michigan where he's set to compete in more Michigan Players Tour events in the coming weeks. His iron play needs to improve and it will. While in California, Jordan received an iron fitting and discovered the new Taylormade P730 irons are best for his game. The irons increased his launch angle, increased his ball speed, and increased his spin giving him better control when attacking greens. These irons are played by many PGA Tour players including Rory Mcilroy, Dustin Johnson, and Justin Rose. Improved iron play will help reduce his bogeys per round and lower his scores even more.
