This week: Nationwide Tour’s Players Cup, Thursday through Sunday, Pete Dye Golf Club, Bridgeport, W.Va.
Fourth-round score: 4-under-par 68.
Position: Putnam (9-under 279) finished tied for seven, six strokes behind winner Tom Gillis (273).
Recap: Scores were high, and the Tacoma golfer took
advantage by climbing 16 spots in the final round to post his best
finish – and first top-10 – of the season. He had three front-nine
birdies, and posted his third eagle of the tournament on the par-5
17th, repeating that feat from Saturday.
Next: He has a week off, but will play in the Fort Wayne Gretzky Classic starting July 9 at The Georgian Bay Club in Ontario, Canada.
