Summerhays, the year-old from Scottsdale, Arizona, who spends his summers in his native Utah, ended it with an 8-foot birdie putt on the par-4 17th, a dogleg left that he also birdied in the morning with a footer after purposely driving down the adjacent 16th fairway. In the afternoon, Summerhays again tried to play his tee shot down the 16th fairway but missed and left himself in the rough between the fairways, with a large tree blocking his path. I was like, 'I could get a pitching wedge over that tree and land it front edge and roll it back. When he hit it, I texted my wife and said that was the greatest shot of his life. Summerhays comes from the first family of Utah golf.
