Former University of Wisconsin golfer David Roesch had a rough time at the U.S. Bank Championship's final round Sunday, shooting a seven-over-par 77 to fall into a tie for 80th place at seven over for the four-day tournament.
Roesch entered play Sunday tied for 52nd but had a tough time avoiding trouble—he carded three double bogeys and two bogeys against just one birdie. He had his worst day of the tournament statistically, hitting just 6 of 13 fairways and only 10 greens in regulation.
Roesch, a touring professional who plays on the Hooters Tour, received a sponsor's exemption to play in the tournament at Milwaukee's Brown Deer Park Golf Course. He recorded a four-over 74 in Thursday's opening round, but rebounded with a 67 Friday to narrowly make the one-over cut line. He added another sub-par round with a 69 Saturday.
For finishing tied for 80th, Roesch received a $6,265 pay check.
