On his 18th hole of the round, the ninth hole on the Wanamaker Course at PGA Golf Club, Schultz teed off at 3-under par. When he was done, Schultz had a triple-bogey 7 that ended his day at even-par 72 and a tie for 70th place.
Schultz had three birdies on his second nine before the triple. He begins the second round today at 8:10 on the Ryder Course.
Sharing the first-round lead with 6-under-par 66s were Lee Houtteman, of Glen Arbor, Mich., and Brad Lardon, of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Following today’s second round, the field will be cut down to the low 70 scores and ties.
