Bridgeman ends Wells-Fargo appearance with even-par round

Clemson’s Jacob Bridgeman finished his first PGA Tour event with a solid even par round at the Wells-Fargo Championship being played in Potomac, Maryland.

The Tiger senior had an under par round going through his first nine holes. Bridgeman made an eagle on the par -4 12th hole and made the turn at two under par.

The field played the final round in difficult conditions. A 58 degree temperature with wind and rain made the first time PGA Tour entrant’s even par round a good outing.

Jacob Bridgeman eagled the 278-yard par-4 12th-hole at TPC Potomac to make the turn at 2-under par in the second round of the Wells-Fargo Championship.

On his final nine, the front nine at the TPC Potomac, he carded a 2-over par 37 to finish even for the day and 6-over for the tournament.

Seven Clemson golfers started the tournament. Ben Martin and last year’s NCAA Champion Turk Pettit both made the cut.

The two were playing on sponsors’ exemptions and now will play the weekend.

Pettit made the cut at 1-under par with two double bogeys on his card.

Martin moved up twenty positions with his even par round of 70 and is now tied for 18th going into the weekend at 2-under par.

Bridgeman is currently second on the PGA Tour University ranking. A season finish in the top-5 guarantees Bridgeman can start his professional career as a fully exempt member of the Korn-Ferry Tour.

Bridgeman finished in front of the other amateur in the field, Eugenio Chacarra. The Oklahoma State senior shot a final round 74 for a 7-over par total.

Bridgman was in some good company on the leader board. In all 12 golfers finished at 7 over par including Clemson grads Lucas Glover and Bryson Nimmer.

Bridgeman will rejoin his team as the Tigers get ready for the NCAA Regional Tournament in Columbus, Ohio starting on May 16th.
