Schultz in 5th at Maryland Open

July 14, 2010


ROCKVILLE, Md. -- Beaver Creek Country Club head professional Dirk Schultz hopes to be on the comeback trail today in the final round of the Maryland Open at Manor Country Club.

After sharing the lead following Monday's opening-round, bogey-free 66, Schultz shot a 3-over-par 73 on Tuesday and fell to fifth. The top 40 players made the cut into today's final round.

Schultz made two birdies that were offset by five bogeys. Two of the bogeys came on holes that Schultz birdied in the first round.

With a 1-under 139, Schultz is seven strokes behind Denny McCarthy, of Argyle Country Club, who fired a 6-under 64 for a 132. First-round co-leader Danny Riskan, of TPC Potomac, shot a 77 Tuesday.


Rotz awaits chance

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Chambersburg graduate Clayton Rotz has to wait until this morning to learn whether he'll move on to match-play competition in the USGA Amateur Public Links Championship at Bryan Golf Center.

Weather forced 18 players to complete their medal-play round today, when the field of 156 will be cut to 64, forcing the match play begin later today.

Rotz, after an opening-round 75, followed with a 72 that left him in a tie for 61st place with five other players, possibly calling for a playoff pending the outcome of the returning golfers.
