While one round does not a championship make, scores are soaring at Old Macdonald.
If the trend continues through the afternoon wave and Tuesday’s second round of stroke play at Bandon Trails, then the cut will be the highest of the past 10 years.
By mid-day on Monday, 10 over was sitting on the 64th position. Should that hold form, a figure close to 20 over may make the cut.
In 2002, coincidentally at Sunriver Resort, also located in Oregon, 15-over-par made the cut. Twice since 2002, 14-over has made the cut.
In 2004 at Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in Williamsburg, Va., 5-over par was the cut line.
