Cyr tied for fifth after 2 rounds in Asian Tour debut
February 10, 2012 - Robert Collias
Sam Cyr, a 2006 King Kekaulike graduate, is tied for fifth place after two rounds of the Philippine Open, his first event on the Asian Tour.
Cyr is one of just 10 golfers under par halfway through the event at the Wack Wack Golf & Country Club (I am not making that name up, I promise) in Manila. He shot 71-72 to stand 1 under, in a six-way tie for fifth, four shots off the lead.
I recently talked to Cyr on the verge of his debut for this story. Cool guy all the way around, about to earn his first Official World Golf Ranking points this weekend.
A fast start is critical for Cyr because he took the first week off to rest and recuperate here from two stages of Q School in Thailand (where he finished t-16) and missed the second stage while waiting for his visa.
This is the third event and there is a reshuffle of priority tournament eligibility after five events, based on the money list. In other words, he has three weeks to get out of the gate quick to be able to nail down his schedule.
I had this to say about Cyr a few blogs back.
We will keep up with Sam's progress here and will get his final results into print Sunday or Monday.
