A former assistant golf pro from Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, is now in the mix at the PGA Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina this weekend.
On Thursday, Jim Herman found himself leading the opening round of the PGA Championship. Herman endured making bogeys on the last two holes to finish 2-under 69.
Herman told the New York Post, “Little disappointed with the finish. I know it’s a difficult finish. I made a great save on 16 to save par there. I didn’t hit a bad shot on the two holes I made bogey, so I could feel good about [that]. I still did not get up-and-down on either. So I feel really confident. I feel like I drove the ball really well.”
Herman won the Shell Houston Open in 2016 and the experience from that will help him in a tournament like the PGA Championship this weekend. Looks like he’s gone a long away since the days he played golf with Donald Trump.
