The first major golf tournament experience for Blaine’s Keith Henderson came to an early end, as the former Loomis Trail Golf Course head pro shot an 11-over par 81 during the second round of the U.S. Senior Open Friday at Salem Country Club, in Peabody, Massachusetts.

The 81 followed up a first-round 77 from Thursday and left Henderson 18-over for the tournament – left him well outside the projected cut once play was suspended Friday. Henderson is currently tied for 149th in the 156-player field, with only a handful of players yet to complete second-round play.

Henderson, who was in the second group to tee off on the 10th hole Friday, carded bogeys on the first, second, fourth and ninth holes for a front-nine total of 39. He then scored double-bogey on three of his final six holes, sandwiched around another bogey.

For the tournament, Henderson carded one birdie and 14 holes over par.
