Chase Seiffert just barely failed to make the weekend of his first event as an official member of the PGA Tour on Friday, falling one shot off the cut line at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W.V.
Seiffert, a Mosley High School and Florida State graduate, shot a 1-under-par 69 on Friday to follow up a 68 in Thursday’s first round to get to 3-under for the tournament, just one shot below the 4-under cut.
Seiffert opened his round Friday with five straight pars before making birdie on the Par-4 sixth, hitting his second shot on the green and making a 10-foot putt.
But he followed that with a five on the Par-4 seventh after hitting his second and third shots in the rough.
Seiffert then made birdie at No. 10 and No. 12 to get to 2-under for the day and 4-under for the tournament, but he gave up the necessary stroke on No. 13 when his tee shot went into the native area.
After taking a penalty and a drop, Seiffert was able to salvage a bogey, but another errant tee shot on No. 16 that went into the water cost him another stroke.
Seiffert finished his day and his tournament with a birdie at 17 and a par at 18.
