After the opening round of November 19, the PGA Tour event at Sea Island recorded Camilo Villegas and Matt Wallace as top leaderboard at score -6.
To attend RSM Classic, golfers alternately play at Seaside par70 and Plantation par72. On the opening day, Villegas and Wallace beat together Seaside. Villegas recently lost his daughter due to brain tumor, and Wallace had to ask for a temporary caddy because his trusted assistant was infected with nCoV.
Yesterday, Villegas cleared the bogey, and scored six birdies, while Wallace scored eight birdies with two bogeys. Both of them share the top spot for the trophy group thanks to their high professional performance in the last hole.
Villegas starts from hole 10. Arriving at hole 9 par4, 457 yards long, Colombian player plays 307 yards on the left side of the fairway and then adds 151 yards to go up to a “2 on” green. He then latched the birdie hole from 2.7 meters.
Wallace entered hole 1. Arriving in hole 18 par4, 472 yards long, the English player hit the wasteland and lost the ball. After receiving a penalty of a stick and dropping the new ball on the rough grass on the right side of the fairway, Wallace is still on the green. The ball was nine meters from the hole, but he still pushed it in to keep par.
Villegas and Wallace are taking a one-stroke advantage over an eight-player T3, four of whom hit Plantation.
Villegas was born in 1982, entered professional golf since 2004 and has owned four PGA Tour titles. But for the whole year of 2019, he had to hang up his stick because of a shoulder injury. Earlier this year, his less than two year old daughter – Mia – had a tumor of the brain and spine. In July, she died while receiving chemotherapy.
“At the warm-up, I saw a small rainbow appear. Remember Mia, I told myself ‘let’s have a good match'”, Villegas shares the spiritual motivation from a girl who likes rainbows.
After Mia’s death, the PGA Tour commemorated it by distributing rainbow ribbons to the major players in the PGA Championship and Wyndham Championship. Many people have continued to wear it for the rest of the season.
And Wallace is fine with the temporary caddy. Earlier this week, trusted caddy Dave McNeilly was unfortunately infected. To better understand the two fields that have never been played, Wallace thought he needed a local assistant and eventually chose his partner Jeffrey Cammon – a specialist in the fine-tuning of the club on Sea Island. Both have agreed the working principle “save interest”.
“The first question, Jeffrey asked, ‘What do you want me to say?’ I said ‘nothing needed. And when I ask, you just need to answer exactly as you know.’ And that’s effective, “Wallace said.
