Because of a triple-bogey 7 on the final hole, Farmington's Daniel Summerhays plummeted from the top five into a tie for 19th place at the PGA Qualifying Tournament Friday at PGA West in La Quinta, Calif.
Summerhays was around the lead all day, starting with birdies on four of the first five holes before making a pair of bogeys. He came back with birdies on his first two holes of the back nine, but made a couple of more bogeys and a birdie before the disaster at No. 9, his final hole, to finish at even-par 72.
Tied with Summerhays at 209 is former BYU golfer Dean Wilson, who shot a 71 Friday. Wilson had four birdies and a bogey, but was hurt by a double-bogey at No. 10.
Another player who had a poor finish Friday was former No. 1-in-the-world David Duval, who after getting to 4-under on the day, finished bogey, double-bogey, double bogey to fall from 43rd to 115th in the 172-player field.
Summerhays and Wilson need to stay in the top 25 to earn their PGA cards for 2012. The 108-hole tournament concludes on Monday.
Will Claxton is the leader for the third straight day, at 203, followed by Bobby Gates, Matt Jones and 20-year-old South Korean Seung-yul Noh at 205.
