The Daniel Summerhays train came to a halt Thursday at the TPC Colorado Championship at Heron Lakes as he missed the cut by one shot after shooting a second-round 75.

Summerhays, who had tied for second at the Utah Championship on Sunday in what he planned to be his final tournament as a touring professional, ran into trouble on the back nine and bogeys on both of the par-5s were especially costly. He had shot a 3-under-par 69 in Wednesday’s first round, and he ended up at even-par 144.

After his strong finish in Utah, Summerhays decided to put his retirement on hold to play in Colorado as he traveled to Missouri with his family to visit relatives. He said he might play in the Utah Open later this summer.

The only Utah golfer to make the cut at the Korn Ferry event was Ogden’s Patrick Fishburn, whose 71 left him in a tie for 33rd place at 141. Until he bogeyed the final two holes, Fishburn was set to be in a tie for 15th place, five shots off the pace of Will Zalatoris, who finished fourth in Utah last week.

Sandy resident Mike Weir, who made the cut in Utah last week, struggled to a 76 Thursday and finished well off the cut at 150, while Ogden’s Connor Howe, who plays for Georgia Tech, bounced back with a 71 Thursday, but also finished at 150.
