BOB WEST’S CHIP SHOTS — Andrew Landry fades down stretch, other local news
Pea Patch alums had to be salivating Saturday when Andrew Landry was matching Stroud birdie for birdie in the RBC.
At one point, both of the PNG exes were in the top 10. Landry, though, like Stroud, faded after the rain delay, shot even par 71 and wound up tying for 31st at 272.
Two double bogeys during the final round proved extremely costly for Landry who, over the course of the week, made 20 birdies. He’d opened with rounds of 68-67-66. Landry, who finished T49 two weeks ago at Colonial, is taking this week off. …
Braden Bailey will look to rebound this week in the APT Cooper Communities NWA Charity Classic in Bella Vista, Arkansas, after a rare bad tournament. The PNG ex missed the cut last week in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, after rounds of 78-69. …
