Russell Henley fired a -6 under par 64 Friday and holds a one shot lead over Dustin Johnson at the Northern Trust being played at the Glen Oaks Club, in Old Westbury, NY.

He ended the round with 8 birdies and 2 bogeys.

Solid play by this young man who only turned pro in 2011. Another Georgia Bulldog to make his mark on the PGA Tour.

Dustin Johnson ended up with 6 birdies and his only bogey was on the par 3 –2nd when he three putted the hole.

I loved watching Dustin today.

He really has it back and look out he may take it all the way to the end! Don’t forget these events quadruple the Fed Ex Cup points.

The winner gets 2,000 points. WOW!

We have a nice 3 way tie for 3rd place at -4 under par. Scott Brown, Camilo Villegas, & Chris Kirk.

It’s nice to see Scott Brown, the pride of Augusta Georgia, playing well again. So many injuries but he seems to be feeling great and back again.

What a great round of golf 4 birdies and no bogeys.

A perfectly clean scorecard. There weren’t many of those today. This course is tough.

Villegas has 3 bogeys but knocked in a 161 yard fairway shot for an eagle on #18. Boy eagles surely do help a scorecard! My boy from St. Simon’s Island Georgia, Chris Kirk, also a BullDog from Georgia, had a clean card with 4 birds and all the rest pars.

Consistency goes a long way especially during these playoffs.

Patience and consistency is what it is going to take to be able to hoist the FedEx Cup Trophy at the Tour Championship in Atlanta, Georgia.

I know I haven’t mentioned Louie Oosthuizen yet. The greatest swing on the PGA Tour was -4 under and at that time in a tie for 2nd place.

He started on the back and reeled off 3 birdies to get things going.

The bogey that bumped him out of 2nd was the par 4 #7 where he kicked it around for a 5. I really hope he plays well the rest of the year. Great guy and great golfer!
