Andrade Tied 13th After Round 1 of Chubb Classic, Quigley in Mix
In his first PGA Champions Tour event of the season, Rhode Island’s Billy Andrade sits in a tie for 13th after round one of the Chubb Classic in Naples, Florida.
Andrade shot a 3-under 69 in the first round and is tied with players such as Ernie Els, Paul Goydos, Rod Pampling, and Joe Durant.
Brett Quigley sits in a tie for 44th and Brad Faxon is in 74th.
To the surprise of no-one, Bernhard Langer leads the tournament at 8-under par.
Andrade’s 1st Round
After pars on the first four holes, Andrade birdied the fifth and sixth holes to get to two-under on the day.
Following a bogey on the eighth hole, Andrade bounced back with a birdie on the ninth hole to turn at 34.
Making the turn, Andrade saved par on 10 and 11, then birdied the 12th hole to get to three-under.
Andrade would bogey the 14th hole, but close with a birdie on the 18th hole to shoot 69.
Quigley’s 1st Round
To say Brett Quigley’s first six holes were a rollercoaster might actually be an understatement.
Quigley opened the tournament with a double on the first hole, followed by a bogey on the second hole.
Three-over right off the bat.
Quigley then birdied the next three holes to get it right back, but suffered another double on the par-5 sixth hole.
He parred out to turn at 38.
The back nine was much less stressful.
Quigley birdied the 12th hole and parred every other hole to shoot 73 on the day.
