Mackenzie Hughes, from Canada leads after the first round of the RSM Classic, shooting 61 at Sea Island.
Mackenzie carded a bogey free -9 under par 61 to lead the RSM Classic by just one shot, he was even thinking of a 59;
“It was one of those days where everything was kind of clicking and was going right.”
“Toward the end there I had a chance to shoot 59 and I was thinking about it, but came up a couple short. But it was a great day.”
Stewart Cink and Jonathan Byrd, who is a resident of Sea Island, shared second place at -8 under par after the opening rounds of 62.
Stewart was relieved after hearing a good report on his wife’s cancer condition;
“I am just really encouraged by the way she’s been able to fight and handle it.”
“She’s had definitely a lot of ups and downs and she feels pretty well, and she got a good report Monday, real good. She’s really like an inspiration for me.”
“I’m just trying to let golf be a piece of my life and not let life be a piece of golf.”
“If you see me out here playing, then you can assume that means that she’s doing fairly well, at least well enough to travel, because I’m not going anywhere without her.”
You can be assured Stewart that the whole world is with you.
