O’ Rourke was fast out of the blocks carding three birdies in his first four holes and only dropping one stroke on his 7th hole taking him out in 32 on the Par 69 layout. Despite a double bogey 6 on the 10th, O’ Rourke bounced straight back with birdie on the 11th followed by another gain on the 15th.
