Moving day is always an important one on the PGA Tour and today was no different, at the RBC Heritage presented by Boeing .
Saturday, also known as “moving day”, shows us what can happen quickly.
Today the BIG MOVE was Jason Duffner who fired a dazzling -6 under par 65 and vaulted himself into the top of the leader-board.
Jason didn’t make it easy on us or himself starting out with a bogey one #1, hits #2 in 2 shots no drains an 11′ putt for an eagle 3, and proceeds to bogey #3.
WOW who starts out a round of golf this way? Jason Duffner that’s who.
He kept the fun going with a par on #4 then proceeded to knock in a 100 foot wedge for his second eagle of the round.
A par, a bogey, a par, & a birdie and finished the front side with a 34. He really took the hard road to a 34. The back nine was a bit different for Jason.
He birdies 10, parred the next 3 holes, birdies the next 3, & parred the last 2 for a sensational 31. The 65 was enough to give him a 1 shot lead over 2nd place.
In second place is Graham DeLaet all alone at -12 under par. Graham missed a very make-able putt on 18 for a possible tie but missed it and had to settle for 2nd.
Kevin Kisner and Webb Simpson are tied for 3rd at -11. Kevin shot the a wonderful round of 66 and Webb shot a -3 under par 68.
The guys everybody has their eyes on is of course Ian Poulter who is in 5th place all by himself.
He has to make $144,000 within the next 3 weeks to keep his tour card. I didn’t hear anybody ask him about it today because he has been asked everyday the same question.
“How much is this on your mind?” His answer is simple ” I don’t try to think about it, I only want to play good golf”. Personally I hope he does it this week.
With perfect weather everyone thought there would be low scores this week.
Harbour Town is showing that it is a TRUE test of golf even though it is not the longest course but a shot makers course. People need to putt great too.
Scoring is not easy on this course. It looks easier than what it is. Depending on pin placements a lot of things can happen.
Sunday is going to be thrilling and hope you will all tune in at 1:00 on the golf channel and 3:00 on CBS!
