McLeod has rough second day at Gloria Jean's Coffee NSW Open

Jack McLeod, a seventeen year old Deaf golfing prodigy of Australia competed in the Gloria Jean's Coffee NSW Open as an amateur this past weekend. In the first round, McLeod finished the day one under par scoring 71. On the first round, McLeod had 13 pars, 3 birdies, and 2 bogeys which was good for 44th place.

McLeod needed to do well in the second round to make the cut but his fate was sealed after the fourth hole. After scoring a par on the first hole, McLeod recorded three consecutive bogeys putting himself in a difficult spot. For McLeod to recover from a rough start, McLeod would need to record multiple birdies and maybe an eagle but he only had one on the day at the 5th hole. McLeod would go on to finish the course with three additional bogeys to finish 5 over par at 77. McLeod recorded 1 birdie, 11 pars and 6 bogeys in the second round that prevented him from making the cut.
