Brendan Steele, Tyler Duncan, & Tom Hoge all fired 7 under par 65’s on this par 72 golf course.

Tom Hoge had one birdie and 8 pars on the front nine holes and blistered the back with 6 birdies and 3 pars. He finished strong ending with 3 straight birdies for a 30.

Tyler Duncan, one we aren’t too familiar with also finished with 3 birdies in a row. He dropped in a 119 yard shot from the fairway on the 10th hole for an eagle 2.

Brendan Steele eagles the par 5 fifth hole with a kick in eagle from 2 feet away. He also birdied the last 3 holes finishing with the -7 under par round and a tie for first.

We have a strong 4 way tie for 4th place. 2 shots out at -5 under par are Lucas Glover, Chez Reavie, Jamie Lovemark, & Emiliano Grillo. They all had 67’s and are all very much in the race!

It is fun getting to see all the new guys who earned their card and this may be their first official tournament with their PGA tour card in their pocket.

We are also seeing some old pros going head to head with the young bucks.

I know most people don’t think Zach Johnson is old but this 12 time winner on the PGA tour said this week that his game is good and he needs some competition to stay sharp.

I guess he is right because he fired a 68 yesterday and is in a tie for 8th place with Kevin Tway, Ryan Moore, & Maverick McNealy making his first PGA tour début as a pro.

He turned pro a few days ago and is chomping at the bit to get off to a great start. He is going to be a fan favorite out there for years to come!

Phil Mickelson deceided to play this week before taking some time off. He played well in the Presidents Cup and is eager to keep it going and play his way onto the Ryder Cup team.

Phil shot 69 and is in a tie for 12th place . I hope he makes the Ryder Cup team and wins more points. He loves the competition and would love to play!!
