Although his left index finger lost half of his nail, Tyler McCumber still hit 67 bogey-free strokes to enter the T4 group at -4 on February 18 – the first day of the PGA Tour event in Los Angeles.

Two days ago, McCumber had his index finger stamped while pulling the hotel window. The doctor said it would hurt him if he tried to fight. But yesterday, McCumber still started a Genesis Invitational competition with four birdies on the Riviera, par71.

“It was fortunate that there was a hand surgeon at the match point. He told me to remove his nails, but in the end, only half of it,” McCumber said. Golf Channel. He also played the video of the minor surgery with his own phone. McCumber’s index finger was still bandaged on the field, so he had to cut off that part of the glove. “It was cold early morning so it was chilly. Less than half of my nails will hurt, but the wound is bleeding. Maybe the Riviera will help me forget it,” McCumber joked.

The whole round of American players born in 1991 played an average of 304.7 yards, hit seven of the 14 fairways and went to the green according to the standard 13 holes with two birdies per half, including the time at the 309 yard long hole with top difficulty in short par4 holes at the PGA Tour. This hole, most colleagues use the driver to go straight green, but McCumber “split the stick”. After hitting the fairway 284 yards, he slipped into the hole 1.5 meters away and from there a putt finished.

McCumber has been playing professionally since 2013, just entering the PGA Tour this season. Painting 10 events, he cut four times, of which twice reached the top 10. McCumber is ranked 295 in the world (OWGR).
