AmericaHarris English’s Hole-in-one in the opening round on September 2 was more memorable because it happened on the 15th hole for the first time in 23 years East Lake has hosted the PGA Tour season closing event.
English plays the 15th hole with a 5 iron, 224 yards. The ball hits target after three bounces on the green. The Tour Championship first returned to East Lake in 1998, returned every two years and then fixed in 2004. During this time, hole 15 did not record an ace, until English was on the teeing ground yesterday.
“The audience cheered and I was overjoyed for about 15 seconds. I know my own caddy is crazy about this. He likes wine, so he’ll probably ask for a treat. Maybe I’ll have to go buy it when the game is over”, English share feelings and “responsibility” on Golfweek after a rare hit on hole 15.
Next, he scored two birdies and held par to close the round on hole 18. With 66 strokes on par70, English and Bryson DeChambeau finished T3 with an -8 score, five strokes from the top of the table. He entered the tournament with a score of -4, according to the “starting advantage” distribution that the PGA Tour applied to the Tour Championship, which was only available to the top 30 players this season to find the title of the whole arena championship.
With this style, Patrick Cantlay kept the top of the league table before the actual battle, at -10 thanks to the top of the FedEx Cup table. After the opening stage of 67 strokes, Cantlay still leads with -13 points.
World number one Jon Rahm from four strokes behind Cantlay to two strokes away thanks to a -5 round point and the deepest negative on the opening day. Yesterday, “distant boss” DeChambeau – averaging 321.7 yards this season, scored five birdies but to four bogey should earn just one point.
Dustin Johnson – defending champion and FedEx Cup – is in T10 (-5). He entered the title defense at -3.
