On June 7, Nate Lashley withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open, opening the door for John Rollins to tee it up just outside of Toronto this week. But he isn’t just playing St. George’s Golf and Country Club, he still has a day job.
Rollins showed up Thursday morning, microphone in hand, and announced PGA Tour Live on ESPN+. But, once it was time to warm up, he changed into his golf clothes and headed to the range.
His opening round was impressive, mixing three bogeys with three birdies for a Thursday even-par 70.
On Friday, Rollins struggled, eventually signing for an 8-over 78. Despite the disappointing showing, he went right back out on the course for another stroll around St. George’s, this time with a microphone.
