Rafferty earns Florida top-10

Fergal Rafferty tied for ninth place in the Hall of Fame Classic played at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Fla. Rafferty, of Carrickmore, Omagh, Co. Derry, was in the mix from the get-go of this event which is part of the National Professional Golf Tour. He opened with 65, just one stroke off the lead. Subsequent rounds of 73, 71 and 70 dampened his title hopes and left him 10 strokes behind medalist Tony Finau. Rafferty earned $3,700.

So much for the idea that Padraig Harrington turned a corner after his top-10 finish at the Masters. He followed that with a missed cut at the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town in Hilton Head, S.C. He finished 36 holes four strokes over par after rounds of 74 and 72, during which he put seven bogeys and three birdies on his cards. That’s 146 for 36 holes; 145 made the cut.
