Club pro Michael Bembenick fails to break 100 on Web.com Tour

NEWBURGH, Ind. (AP) - Assistant club pro Michael Bembenick had a rough start in a Web.com Tour event, and then it got even worse. After making one last double bogey Friday in the United Leasing Championship, he signed for 103.

Bembencik, who works at Meridian Hills Country Club in Indianapolis, was named the Assistant Golf Professional of the Year in Indiana in 2012. This was his Web.com Tour debut, and it was memorable. He opened with an 89, and made 13 double bogeys, three triple bogeys and a quadruple bogey in 36 holes.

But he never quit. The 27-year-old told Golf Channel it was important to lead by example and show kids that no matter how bad it gets, it's important to finish. Bembenick says none of the members at his club or students he teaches would want to see him quit.
