Nationwide Tour graduate Daniel Summerhays was headed towards another missed cut this week at The Heritage until he played the 17th and 18th holes -- two of the toughest on the course -- in 3 under.
Summerhays had just come off a double bogey on the 16th when he aced the 17th, putting him 2 under on the day and even for the tournament. He was still pumped up on the 454-yard 18th, when he drilled his approach from 203 yards to 15 feet and sank the putt.
Summerhays, a distant 112th in FedExCup standings, has made just three cuts this year and none since the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Going into today's second round, he'd made just one eagle this year, and his ace on the 16th doubled that total.
