The underdog, #12 seed 2011 Charles Howell III, whitewashes #5 seed 2014 Chris Kirk 5 & 3 to advance to 2nd Round Play in the Bobby Jones Bracket! Howell was 6 UNDER thru 15 Holes when the match ended to Kirk’s 1 UNDER!
Kirk never had the lead in the match as he lost 3 holes as a result of costly bogeys! On the 4 holes that he birdied, only 2 of them were won as Howell was making birdies too that resulted in HALVES. Howell moves on to face the winner of the #4 seed 2013 Zach Johnson & #13 seed 2014 Ryan Palmer match.
