PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - Former Madison Cub Blair Shadday played the final two rounds of the 36th National Car Rental PGA Assistant Championship in five-over-par to finish 20-strokes off the lead and tied for 23rd.
Shadday, a 1998 graduate of Madison who is now the first assistant pro at Purgatory Golf Club in Fishers, carded a two-over 74 on Saturday and a three-over 75 on Sunday. Combined with Shadday's 70-72-142 over the first two rounds he ended the 72-hole event at three-over 291.
Jake Scott, an assistant pro from Strongsville, Ohio, led the final three rounds to win the event with a 69-65-67-70-271 that was 17-under par and seven strokes better than runner-up and first round leader Ryan Vermeer of Omaha, Neb.
Scott took home $9,000 of the $100,000 purse and earned a spot in the 46th PGA Professional National Championship, June 23-26, 2013, at Sunriver (Ore.) Resort.
Shadday, who was making his third trip to the event since 2009, finished the tourney with 16 birdies, one eagle, 37 pars, 16 bogeys and one double bogey. He hit 37-of-56 fairways and 46-of-72 greens in regulation and used 118 putts over the 72 holes.
Shadday is the grandson of retired Madison Sunrise Golf Course pro Bob Rusk.
