Let's start with the good news first — Tommy Robinson finally has a birdie under his belt at a U.S. Senior Open.
In fact, he has three. After not making a birdie during his first experience at a Senior Open two years ago at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, the superintendent at Ravinia Green CC in Deerfield, Ill., will take home a trio of memorable scores from the 2010 event at Sahalee CC. He made a long, downhill put on the first hole for birdie, nearly aced the par-3 fifth hole before settling for an 18-inch tap-in putt and then conquered the lengthy par-4 18th hole in just three shots.
Unfortunately for Robinson, though, those highlights weren't enough to overcome the big numbers that kept haunting the 34-year GCSAA member during his second round. After shooting an 83 in the first round, Robinson finished with an 89 on Friday — a total of 32-over-par for the tournament — and missed the cut by a wide margin.
