The Championship illustrated the dramatic ups-and-downs of the game. PGA Club Professional Stuart Smith of Somersett Golf and Country Club in Reno, Nevada, enjoyed his moment in the spotlight as one of six co-leaders after the first round. Unfortunately, he struggled mightily in his second round. Nonetheless, it was a lasting memory for him, plus his family and club members in attendance.
