It was almost late to start, but Sergio Garcia broke to the top with -7 at the PGA Tour main event in Florida.
The tournament took place on the Stadium, par72 of the TPC Sawgrass golf complex – where the PGA Tour headquarters is located. Bonus fund reached 15 million USD.
Yesterday, Garcia was almost late starting from hole 10 because she thought enough time to go from the practice area to the main field. After spotting personal confusion while walking, he had to run hurriedly later. When he arrived, he had only one minute left from the prescribed time.
After a hasty exit, Garcia closed the round of 65 strokes, with a scoreboard consisting of two eagles in each half, four birdies and one bogey. Particularly in the last section – from holes 7 to 9, the Spanish player born in 1980 in turn pegs the birdie-birdie-eagle, in which, both birds are from 4.5 meters and eagles are 5.4 meters away.
During the whole leg, Garcia played an average of 288.8 yards, hit 10 in the 14 fairways and went to the green according to the 15-hole standard.
“I don’t understand why the pitch is so good today. Most of the hole, I handled the way,” Garcia commented on the opening stage. In The Players Championship, he won it in 2008, adding two more times to runners-up.
The opening round this year is slow, with 21 players not out of expertise. They will settle the backlog, at most four holes on the morning of March 12 – Florida time, and on the second round of the same day.
Garcia is taking a two-stroke lead over Brian Harman who is second after 18 holes. Third place (score -4) includes three players, including Shane Lowry – defending champion major The Open. After this group was T6 (score -3) with six people, including Bryson DeChambeau – “far away from PGA Tour” and Tom Hoge.
Yesterday, Hoge scored three birdies and was the only non-bogey player and the Stadium recorded 13 golfers hitting 80 or more strokes, of which Henrik Stenson was in worst form – 85 strokes. Swedish Golfer Stenson won a major in six PGA Tour championships and 11 European Tour titles.
General statistics also show that 22 people “collapsed” triple bogey or worse. World number one Dustin Johnson is at T60 (score +1) while defending champion Rory McIlroy is in T139 (score +7).
