The top of the Leader-Board only has one household name tonight from the Deutsche Bank Championship. Many have not heard of Seung-Yul Noh or Chris Kirk. They do know Tiger Woods though. Seung-Yul Noh is your leader after day one, he shot a great round of 62 to get to 9 under par at the TPC Boston. Seung-Yul Noh had birdies at number 2, 4,5,6,7 and was bogey free on his front nine. Seung-Yul Noh would get the birdie train moving once again once he got to the back side, with birdies at 13,15,17 and 18 to cap off a fantastic round 62.
Chris Kirk is alone in second place after shooting an opening round 8 under par 63. Kirk had birdies on 1,2,4,and 7 and would end his front nine bogey free. Kirk wasn’t that lucky once he got to the back nine, he made bogey at bogey at number 11 but more than made up for it. Kirk birdies 12,13,16 and made eagle on the par 5 18th. Kirk started on the back but I still wrote the story as though he went off the front. (he actually made the bogey before he really got going today).
Tiger Woods shot a neat little round of 64 today to be 2 shots off the lead. Woods played the back nine first and was 3 under at the turn. He would go on to Tiger would go onto birdie the first five holes on his front nine. Tiger wouldn’t make a bogey until he reached his last hole of the day number 9. Woods is 2 strokes back and is in the hunt once again. Now lets see if he can stay in the hunt through Monday.
