Buerk started on hole number ten today and birdied the par four to start things right. He went par on the next six holes and then went bogey, birdie, bogey to finish the back nine at even par.
He started the front nine with a bogey, but added a birdie on hole number three to pull back to even par. A bogey on five and seven, sandwiched around a double on six put him at four over going into the final two holes, but he birdied both eight and nine to recover for two over on the day.
