Martin in a Hole at PGA Professional National Championship

Posted: Updated:

 Wheeling Country Club pro Jason Martin shot an opening-round +6 over par 78 in the opening round of the 47th PGA Professional National Championship at the Dunes Golf & Beach Club & Grande Dunes Resort Club in Myrtle Beach.

 Martin made four birdies, but had eight bogeys and a double-bogey.  He's tied for 222nd out of 311 players, and will have to go low to make tomorrow's cut.

The leaders are Dave McNabb and Johan Kok who carded rounds of -5 under par 67.

The top 20 finishers earn a spot in the PGA Championship at Valhalla in early August.
