CROMWELL, Conn., July 25 (UPI) -- Peter Jacobsen was in first place after two rounds of the Greater Hartford Open Friday and Suzy Whaley managed to avoid last place.
Whaley, the second woman this year to play in a PGA Tour event, had four double-bogeys and a 13-over-par total after shooting a 78. A local club pro, Whaley earned the right to play by winning her local PGA sectional championship last autumn.
She tied Mike Springer for 151st place in the 154-player field. She was two shots better than Gabriel Hjertstedt of Sweden, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, and Ryan Ouellette. David Duval withdrew after firing a first-round 83.
