The first day of the PGA Gainey Challenge is in the book. In the Inferno Cup portion of the competition, Skyler Irvine together with Evan Carr, topped the field with a net 56. Bailey Ogrin and Rickie Currens were five strokes back in second place. There was a three way tie for third at 63. Tom Swan and Pat Collins won the scorecard playoff over Rick Hurula and Matt Bintzler who in turn beat Mike Nichols and Kris Rosser in their scorecard playoff.

With the victory, Skyler moved from 17th place into 11th place in the race for The Cup. Ogrin closed the gap on Jones in first place, but still has some work to do.

The teams play again Sunday in a scramble format. Skyler’s team has a big advantage in the PGA Gainey Challenge, but the pro’s scores are yet to be counted and anything can happen in a scramble.
