Welch’s Day 

After a 73 in the first 18, Welch’s second 18 was a bit of a rollercoaster. 

After birding the 2nd and ninth holes to post two-under on the front nine, Welch’s day got a bit crazy on the second nine. 

The former Classical star bogeyed the 11th hole, made an eight on the par-4 12th hole, birdied the 13th hole, bogeyed the 14th hole and took a seven on the par-5 15th hole to shoot 42 on the back and 76 overall.
