2016 BLACKHAWK INVITE max hosking 1.jpg

EWA BEACH, Hawaii -- It's onto Monday's open qualifier for the PGA Tour's Sony Open for Madison's Maxwell Hosking and River Falls' Neil Johnson.

The Wisconsin golfers shot matching 1-over-par 73s and finished tied for 15th on a cool, windy and rainy day at Hoakalei CC at the pre-qualifier with the top 40 joining a field of 18 golfers exempt into the open qualifier Monday on the same course. That contingent includes former PGA Tour golfers Steve Allan, Ricky Barnes, Zachary Blair, Ken Duke, Ted Purdy and Y.E. Yang.  

It took a score of 4-over 76 or better to make the open qualifier.

Hosking, who started on the back nine, seemed to be sitting pretty after making birdies at Nos. 11 and 18 to make the turn in 2-under 34. However, a double-bogey 6 at No. 2 led to a three-hole stretch he played 4-over, forcing him to scramble with birdies at Nos. 6 and 9 around a bogey at No. 7.

Johnson, who started on the front nine, also started strong.

He birdied Nos. 1 and 4 and was still 2-under through No. 7 before back-to-back bogeys closing the front nine left him with a 36. Johnson birdied Nos. 11 and 12 to get back to 2-under only to bogey Nos. 14, 16 and 17.

A year ago, it took a 4-under 68 in the Monday qualifier to get into a 6-for-2 playoff for the last of the four spots in the Sony Open in Hawaii field. Johnson, who shot 72 to get into the open qualifier, shot 70 to miss the playoff by two shots.
