Estes’s 72-hole total of 2-over 290 led four other club pros who made the cut and also was ahead of such major champions as Jeff Sluman, Ian Woosnam and Corey Pavin.
“Not bad for a broken down old pro who doesn’t practice,” Estes said. “I spend more time working with other people’s games than my own. But it’s just a privilege and an honor to get out here and play well in front of people that I know well — students, wounded veterans, but also some of my high school kids.”
