Cyr fires second straight 64, wins first stage flight by six
October 25, 2013 - Robert Collias
Sam Cyr is simply playing the best golf of his life right now. Today, he fired his second 8-under 64 in a row to win his flight in the first stage of Web.com Tour qualifying by six strokes.
He had nine birdies and a bogey today — 17 birdies and an eagle over the last two days, three eagles in the tournament, and his two 64s matched two others for the best rounds of the event — to finish at 22-under 266, six strokes better than Zack Byrd and T.J. Vogel.
Cyr finished second in the recent Asian Tour Mercuries Taiwan Masters to win $72,000, move into the top 30 on the Asian Tour Order of Merit, and into the top 600 on the Official World Golf Rankings.
As a flight winner, Cyr, 27, will have his choice of six venues for the second stage of Web.com Tour qualifying Nov. 19-22. The finals, where Web.com Tour cards will be on the line, are Dec. 12-17.
As I have stated many times before the 2005 King Kekaulike graduate, two-time NAIA champion for Point Loma Nazarene, 12-time winner in college, and Maui Open, Hawaii State Open and Mid-Pacific Open champion is headed for big things.
We will follow his progress right here.
