Scott Langley shoots 62 to lead The Greenbrier Classic at Old White TPC.
Scott carded a bogey free -8 under par 62 in the 1st round of The Greenbrier Classic to lead by one shot at the close of play. Scott is playing this week on a sponsor exemption;
“I’m very thankful just to be in the field this week.”
Tied In second place are Jonathan Byrd and Danny Lee, both have yet to record a top ten finish this year, and this could be their best chance, Jonathan was a little depressed over his poor performances;
“I got a little down on myself earlier in the year because the results weren’t really there.”
“I kind of looked at myself in the mirror and said, you know, at the end of the day, I need to be the most positive guy in the field week in and week out.”
Brian Davis and Ryo Ishikawa are tied in fourth position at -6 under par following their opening rounds of 64.
Keeping the fans really happy were George McNeill and Justin Thomas, both carded holes in one at the par three 18th. The fans around the green were paid cash for the feat, $100 to fans at the hole for George’s ace and $500 for Justin’s, giving a total of about $192,000 to happy fans. The next Ace on the 18th would net fans $1,000 a piece, and in addition, two lucky winners will each have their mortgages paid for a year courtesy of the Quicken Loans Hole In One Sweepstakes.
Tiger Woods had a better day on the golf course than he has produced recently, carding -4 under par 66, will be interesting to see if can keep up the good work.
