It was a very difficult scoring day at The Olympic Club with only 6 players under par (70). The biggest surprise of the day came with the marquee group of Rory (+7), Luke (+9) and Lee (+3) all posting some big numbers. Westwood seemed to come out the best, as he a bogey free 1-under on the back 9.
Round 1 Average Score = 74.92 (+4.92)
Here’s a look at the Nike Golf leaderboard from Round 1;
In the past few years, we expect Tiger, Francesco and Schwartzel to be in contention at majors, so my surprise of Round 1 is Marc Warren. This guy is 322nd in the World Rankings and his only Top 10 of the season came in January. Regardless, Marc played his way into the field and is below the scoring average for the field. Good stuff, mate.
