Tour Update Wagner, Henry in Contention
Henry, current PGA Tour member formerly of Patterson Club in Fairfield, CT, who finished in a tie for 69th at last week’s Shell Houston Open, shot out of the gates in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans being held at the TPC of Louisiana. His round included six birdies and just one bogey and puts him in a tie for 3rd with the likes of Vijay Singh, Tim Clark and Tom Pernice, Jr. Consistently one of longest hitters on Tour, Henry is in the midst of another solid season making 6 cuts totaling $112,125 in earnings. Matt Davidson of West Windsor, NJ opened with a solid one-under 71.
Wagner followed up his opening round 67 with a one-over-par 72 to fall into a tie for 43rd heading into the weekend at the Nationwide Tour’s BMW Charity Pro-Am at The Cliffs in Greenville, SC, the Ben Wright layout which was recently highlighted in the April/May issue of The Met Golfer.
Jim McGovern of Hackensack, NJ followed up his first round 69 with a 67 to move up into a tie for 14th place while Chris Nallen of Hackettstown, NJ is in danger of missing the cut after a second round 74.
