Several of the golfers who were in contention at this weekend’s Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Country Club will be in Owasso May 25 for The Patriot Cup. When we say "in contention," we should qualify that to mean until Rory McIlroy went by like a meteor with a 61 on Saturday.
Edmond North graduate Robert Streb and Topeka, Kan., native Gary Woodland tied for fourth with Phil Mickelson, each carding 12-under 276. Both Streb and Woodland are scheduled to appear.
Streb, who led the tournament after the first round and was in a tie for first with Webb Simpson after the second round, carded a 1-under 71 in Sunday’s final round. He made birdies on holes 5 and 10 and a bogey on No. 15.
Woodland climbed up the leaderboard after finishing the first round in a tie for 30th, then dropping to 32nd after Day 2. He moved up to 13th at the end of play Saturday before shooting a 1-under in the final round.
Woodland recorded six birdies in the final round — on hole Nos. 2, 4, 5, 7, 14 and 15 — and a bogey on the 16th.
Tickets for The Patriot Cup Invitational are $25 and available at area QuikTrip stores. All proceeds go to help the Folds of Honor Foundation, which awards scholarships to the families of U.S. military men or women killed or wounded in action.
