A 6 is never a good score for a professional golfer. So when you get five 6’s on your scorecard as Daniel Summerhays did in Sunday’s final round of the U.S. Open, it’s not a good day.
Summerhays faltered in the fourth round with a 9-over-par 81, his worst score ever in the eight major golf championships he has competed in and finished in 65th place at 12-over-par 300 for the week.
The 33-year-old Fruit Heights resident started with a 6 on the par-5 No. 1 hole and finished with a 6 on the par-5 18th hole. He also made double-bogey 6's on holes 3 and 4 as well as a double-bogey 6 at No. 10. He also had a double-bogey 5 at the par-3 9th hole.
His best holes of the day came at 5 and 7 where he made birdies.
Unless he is able to qualify for the British Open, Summerhays’ next major tournament will be in August at the PGA Championship where he finished in third place a year ago.
