Three QED players made the cut at this weeks Web.com Utah Open. Making this more improbable was the fact that Clay Ogden and Zahkai Brown had to qualify for the event earlier in the week. After Thursday's opening round of 73, Zahkai knew he needed a great round in order make weekend play. With a morning tee time, he went quickly to work and posted a 32 on the front then kept the momentum going with 5 birdies on the back side for a final round of 63.
"I was just trying to make the cut. I knew that if the putts would fall I could shoot a great round. I have been striking the ball really well this week. 63 was a great round and I am excited to have made the weekend on my first Web.com event," said Brown.
Fellow qualifier, Clay Ogden posted 68's on both days and will be looking to better his T8 finish a few years back. Clay, a native of Utah, is not stranger to Willow Creek CC and always enjoys playing in his home state. "Having friends and family on the course is always fun. Playing well makes it just that much better," noted Odgen after his Friday round.
Andy Pope who has been playing solid golf all year, charged out on Thursday with an opening round of 65. After a few stumbles on the front nine, Andy finished with 3 birdies in the final 4 holes to get to -7 for the tournament and inside the top 35.
