GOLF: Broce ups lead at The Dunes
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) — University of Toledo coach Jamie Broce shot a 1-under 71 to increase his lead to three strokes in the PGA Professional National Championship.
Broce, 37, had three birdies and two bogeys at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club to reach 5-under 211. He opened with a 68 at The Dunes and had a 72 on Monday at Grande Dunes.
The top 20 Wednesday will get spots in the PGA Championship in August at Valhalla in Louisville, Ky.
Michael Block was second after a 72. He’s the PGA head professional at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo, Calif.
Karen Paolozzi, the third female player in tournament history, made the 54-hole cut by two strokes. Playing from tees in front of the men, she was tied for 60th at 8 over after a 78.
