Position: Putnam (1-under 141) is tied for 57th, seven strokes behind leader Drew Laning (134).
Recap: The Tacoma golfer easily had his best
ball-striking round of the season – he hit 12 of 14 fairways, and 15 of
18 greens in regulation. The result? His first bogey-free round of
2009, with five birdies coming in the first 10 holes. The All-American
from Pepperdine made his third cut in five Nationwide Tour starts.
