Paul Barjon with a really hot start in Round 2 of the Canadian Open. Starting on the 9th hole, he was -6 through 7. He cooled off a bit after that, but just signed for a 67 that gets him through to the weekend.

A highlight from today and one from yesterday:

Hayden Springer also with a big run today in Colombia. Through 24 holes of the tournament he was at Even and 3 shots outside the cut line. Twelve holes later, he's at -8 and inside the top 10. Shot a back-nine 28 with a pair of eagles.

A two-Frog version of the Knost/Stoltz Subpar podcast this week, as Tom Hoge was the featured guest.
Link to the whole interview:
He talks about getting recruited to TCU from Fargo (UNLV was an alternative), how TCU schedules may or may not have been influenced by proximity to casinos, and a hilarious Bill Montigel impersonation (42:30). Also, he talks about getting paired with Tiger as a rookie and how his first pro victory came the week he stayed in a room at a strip club. Also, his response to Billy Horschel calling him the worst-dressed pro on tour.

Plus a couple of video clips from the interview:

Springer with a run of 5 birdies to get into the top 3 in Colombia.

Edit: Springer eagles the last for a 63; has him within 2 of the lead but it's a crowded leaderboard--bit of a birdiefest.

Good news: Hayden Springer with a final-round 65 to finish T5 (-20) in Colombia.
Less-good news: The winner and runner-up (both -22) leapfrog Hayden in the points standings, so he drops a spot despite the strong finish.

Tom Hoge misses the cut by 2 at Brookline. The U.S. Open has a nice stats page that shows just where players gain/lose shots. Hoge was better than average off the tee but had uncharacteristically poor iron play (144th in the field). Strange, as he's been in the top 10 on tour in that category for most of the year. An announcer on one of the video highlights said that he spoke with Tom on the range and he said he wasn't pleased with how he was hitting it. He also got the less-favorable side of the draw (late/early).

Chris Berzina played well this past week in the Texas Amateur at Willow Brook in Tyler, finishing T24. A couple of other current Frogs came close to making the cut--Ethan Dial missed by one and Colton Cavender by two.

Others of interest: Connor Henry made the cut and finished T48; recent TCU grad Trevor Brown MC'd, as did Aaron Hickman, a Willow Brook member who won the Mid-am Match Play there in 2020.

J.J. Henry shot -1 today. Good play, but missed the cut by a shot. Paul Barjon made the cut on the number.

Barjon took the Rory line on #9 today:

Also of note: Andrew Presley shoots 63 in the APT event in Tulsa this week to get into the top 10 with one round left.
