If you haven’t been paying any attention to Drew Franklin’s Twitter feed, Snapchat story, or Instagram posts, Kentucky native and friend of KSR Kent Bulle is over in England playing in the 2017 Open Championship. Not only is Kent playing, but he is playing really well through the first two days. Bulle is tied for 10th after the completion of Round 2 keeping his overall score at even par.
Here’s a few looks at shots from his opening round, courtesy of Drew.
What’s even better, is that Kent is getting noticed from the media on the PGA Tour. PGATour.com’s Sean Martin wrote a really great story on Bulle’s journey to being able to play in The Open. The piece starts like this:
Glasgow native Kent Bulle is in contention at The Open Championship. He’s not a Scot giving the British fans a rooting interest, though. He’s a Web.com Tour player who is a surprise contender at The Open Championship after earning his spot with a win in South America.
Bulle is from Glasgow, Kentucky, a town of approximately 15,000 residents and a dozen stoplights. It was named for the Scottish hometown of one of its founders, John Matthews. His mascot at Glasgow High School was the Scotties, and the town is known for its annual Scottish Highland Games.
