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 hit the hole, the ball hit the rocky shore along the starboard side and in front of the green. It bounced high, continued to hit the tree trunk, then returned to the green, 2.8 meters from the hole. The Shotlink system from the PGA Tour recorded the ball for 287 yards on the first shot. Davis closed the eagle hole with his second shot – putt.
In the whole round of 69 strokes, Davis, besides the eagle, also had four birdies to compensate for the bogey, thereby standing at T15 with a score of -2. This position is six clubs from the top of the board. The first place after 18 holes belongs to Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm. Both are in the top 5 in the world (OWGR table), in which Rahm holds the top position.
On the opening day, Davis hit 309.5 yards in two holes recorded by the PGA Tour as the average distance of the first shot. 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. This win at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in July, following a five-hole playoff against Troy Merritt and Joaquin Niemann. All three scored -18 after 72 standard 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.
