Rodgers makes cut, Greenbrier next

Avon’s Patrick Rodgers made his second cut in as many weeks as a professional at last weekend’s Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md.

Rodgers shot 73-69-73-76 over his four days to finish at 7-over par for the tournament, which put him in a nine-way tie for 55th place. He took home $14,430 for his efforts, bringing his two-week PGA Tour earnings total to $31,616.

The tournament is hosted annually by Tiger Woods as a benefit for his charitable foundation.

“Very sincere thanks to @TigerWoods and @QuickenLoans for the opportunity to compete at Congressional. Blessed to play against the best,” Rodgers said Monday on Twitter.

Woods made his Tour return at the event after missing over three months due to back surgery, but shot 74-75 to miss the cut by four strokes.

Like most players, Rodgers’ scores went up considerably over the weekend. On Thursday and Friday, there were 40 total rounds in the 60s. On Saturday and Sunday, there were 15, with only three on the final day.

Rodgers was at 2-over overall entering his final nine holes, but two double-bogeys on par-4s helped push him to 5-over for the round.

Justin Rose won the tournament and finished tied with Shawn Stefani at 4-under before winning on the first playoff hole. Rose earned $1,170,000 for the victory.

Rodgers will play in this week’s Greenbrier Classic at the Old White TPC in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Jonas Blixt (-3) won the event and $1,134,000 there last year.
