Rowland Ties for 63rd in Ally Challenge
Monday, August 29, 2022

    After his 1-under-par 71 in Friday's first round of the Ally Challenge in Grand Blanc, Michigan, Roger Rowland was unable to repeat the performance on the weekend. The former Ocalan added a 3-over-75 on Saturday and a 1-over-73 yesterday for 219, 3 over par, and a tie for 63rd. He earned a check for $2,329, boosting his total for 12 Champions Tour events to $19,552. That moved him up two spots on the money list to 128th, so he has a long way to go to remain exempt for next season. 

    In yesterday's round, Roger made two birdies and two bogeys on the front nine for even-par 36, and one bogey on the back for his 37. All told for the 54 holes he canned seven birdies, but nullified them with 10 bogeys. He hit 34 of 42 fairways, and 37 of 54 greens in regulation.

    Steve Stricker won the event with rounds of 70-64-67-201, 15 under par, one stroke better than Brett Quigley. Jeff Maggert closed with 65 and finished third at 13 under, followed by Gator Scott Dunlap, the second-round leader, and Padraig Harrington, both shooting 12 under. Dunlap lost his chance at the trophy with a Sunday 71. 

     Other Gators: Brian Gay - 73-68-72-213 (-3), tie for 38th; Chris DiMarco - tie for 63rd at +3. Marco Dawson, former touring pro at Ocala's Adena Springs course, tied for 48th at 2 under par.
