AmericaCameron Davis missed the green but still scored an eagle 16, par4 thanks to the ball hitting the rock, bouncing into a tree and then coming back near the target on the first day of Northern Trust.
Hole 16 is 325 yards long by design standards, but the PGA Tour booked 283 yards for the opening round.
After Davis’ shot, the ball hit the rocky shore along the starboard side and in front of the green. It bounced high, continued to bounce off the tree trunk, then returned to the green with 2.8 meters from the hole. The Shotlink system from the PGA Tour recorded the ball going 287 yards after leaving the tee. Davis closed the eagle hole with his second shot – putt.
In the whole round of 69 strokes, besides the eagle, Davis also scored four birdies but four bogeys, thereby standing at T15 with a score of -2. He was six strokes from the top of the table. The first place after 18 holes belongs to Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm. Both are in the top 5 in the world, in which Rahm holds the number one position.
On opening day, Davis hit 309.5 yards on two holes averaged by the PGA Tour after tee-off. He hit 11 fairways, went to the green according to the standard 12 holes.
Davis was born in 1995, Australian. He just won a PGA Tour championship in five years as a professional. That was the victory at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in July, after a five-hole playoff against Troy Merritt and Joaquin Niemann. All three scored -18 after 72 holes. Nieman was eliminated on the first extra hole. Davis won by par on the fifth extra hole.
Northern Trust kicks off from June 19, at Liberty National Stadium, par71 in New York, with a bonus fund of $9.5 million.
