Instead of quitting, he headed down to Golftown, spend a couple of hours there, choose a new putter and has been on fire since.

Marshall’s round included nine birdies, and one bogey. His three putt on the 16th fired him up to birdie the 17th and 18th holes and push him into a tie with Canadian Michael Gligic of Burlington Ontario.

The story is a classic golf story of not quitting but reaching inside to find your inner strength.
