Day 1 of Travelers Championship comes to an end

30 June, 2018, 01:33 | Author: Anita Tucker
  • Brooks Koepka who won the U.S. Open last week is in the field for Travelers Championship 2018 this week

He finally reached the green in six and two-putted from 23 feet for triple bogey.

The defending champion led after every round previous year in his first visit to TPC River Highlands, and he shot a 7-under 63 on Thursday to match Zach Johnson for the first-round lead.

Casey started the day with a four-shot cushion over his closest rival American Russell Henley, but a birdie at the first hole was his only one the entire day as his swing deserted him. But really, really cool for us to see people just kind of having a good time sitting up on the hill. Those are obviously nice to see, but still a long way to go.

Brian Harman hits his tee shot on the seventh hole during the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship golf tournament at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C., Thursday, May 3, 2018.

Spieth said last year's win in Cromwell gave him the momentum he needed to claim the British Open title. "It's sort of hard because my body has changed quite a bit since then and the feelings I have, but the feeling I have right now is the feeling I had in the middle of 2009".

They would have preferred to see that opinion remain on the books to influence other lower court judges considering similar cases. Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson has said there is no evidence of hostility against religion in Stutzman's case.

Frustration could have set in, but he was pleased he remained patient, adding: "I felt like mentally I was pretty good". He feels like that extra time could be a turning point in his season. "If I play well, that's circumstantial, but not doing the right preparation, that hurts".

"It's a course that you kind of - when you play it, like you go play on a day like today when you get the pins in the middle of the greens and there's no pressure on anything, it's a really easy golf course", Thomas said. Thomas said the course can play completely different depending on the pin placements.

"You know, we want that for everybody across the board in a fair manner". I just didn't feel great coming off the range.

That has helped attract a 156-player field that includes five world's top 10 ranked golfers and all four reigning major championship winners: Brooks Koepka, who won his second straight U.S. Open last week; Spieth; Masters victor Patrick Reed; and PGA Championship victor Justin Thomas.

He carded four birdies in his opening six holes and three in a row on the back nine, only to drop his only stroke of the round on the 18th.

What's the likelihood? Argentina are 48 per cent, Nigeria 45 per cent and Iceland 7 per cent to make the next stage. Both on six points, they have identical goal totals so a draw would mean top spot going to the best-behaved team .

"They've got some sort of magnetic sand for me", Spieth joked.

"He came over on the boat to say "hi".

His 64 left him one adrift of the leaders, with Johnson setting the early clubhouse target after a spectacular run of six consecutive birdies on the back nine which swept him to eight under, although he then raced his first putt at 17 seven feet beyond the hole and missed the return.

Graeme McDowell struggled to hit fairways and opened with a two-over 72 and it was also a testing day for The Island's Paul McBride at the BMW International Open in Germany.
