Although Saturday’s start was delayed due to rain, Knappe made it through the damp course without any problems. He scored two birdies in the first three holes and was on his way.
Knappe stated that although I could have been lower, 17 made one bogey. “I can’t be too hard on myself, I’m a human being. I had no strategy. To be honest, it was just me playing golf to see how it turned out. I shot 7 under which is quite nice.
