    Brooks was Toms pick (kinda…so was whoever plays the best or something like that).

    Anyhow Brooks had a nice start. But he’s not alone big game hunting at Harding Park.

    Don’t underestimate Todd. This man is a sublime golfer. Sure he lost it a couple Sundays but he has 2 wins this season; not exactly Tony Finau, who as you mentioned is around and poised to win also. Todd is not sexy but he has earned his position as one of the best players in the world. He can win.

    Days back made it thru day 1 as did Tigers.we know both can win with just 3 more days of decent health.

    Tiger seemed satisfied. He practiced for a good while after. He really looks All good things.

    Casey was not mentioned above but he looked super solid day 1. That would be an awesome story.

    Zack had an unfortunate double but I’m not ruling him out.

    Credit to Bryson seemingly got his attitude in check overnight. This was a good day for Bryson. Regardless of what happens he needs to remember his model behavior today.

    The list still in the mix goes on.

    But the real story was Harding Park showed everyone that even on the nicest of days Days -5 was the best the best in the world could muster. All this while earning accolades as a fair test, straight forward test. Clearly this place is a great test for pga championships. The pga of A should already start planning its return.

      Sorry Baxter, obviously you didn’t watch Todd on Sundays at The Travelers and the WGC-St. Jude — nice player but not a guy who’s going to win a major….

        I watched.
        This goes back to people always criticize second thru 5th place in golf tournaments.
        Again, Todd has 2 pga tour wins this season.
        Too harsh on Todd Tom.
        If rich, yA and Shawn can win a major, it’s No guarantee but todd definitely can.
