    Impressive round for the 1 seed; who would be third after day 1 if this was a straight up playoff championship. And that would be a great position to validate his great season by winning it all.

    Still, Scottie really played like a top seed on a mission to validate his great season.

    Iceman had quite the cold round. But his wing man X continues to handle his business at East Lake.

    Cool to see the last man in Wise play so well on his own…funny moment today was when wise pretended to shake hands with his pretend playing partner.

    What a crazy round Rory had. I could not believe he started his day snapping that ball onto the road. Then for some reason someone handed him the ball back over the fence. You don’t see that everyday. And you definitely don’t see a player have so many bounce backs in one day.

    What a great property east lake is. It could use some touch’s for the modern game — but it looks as good as ever on tv.
