Round 1 of The Traveler's Championship

I didn't get a chance to watch ANY golf today which was sad, but I was happy to see my favorites who are playing (Poulter, Kuchar, and Duke) are within a few shots of the lead. Fredrik Jacobson, who is the defending champion is also only 1 stroke off of the lead, which could be interesting since few defending champions come close to their previous scores.

My uncle did get a chance to get his hands on some tickets because his friend is volunteering down there, but we won't be able to go since we wouldn't have a chance to get down there because of his schedule...pretty bummed. We are going to go to the Deutsche Bank Championship near Boston in August since we are actually planning for it. It is a FedEx Cup playoff event so it'll be exciting!

For the Traveler's, all I got to watch were some top shots including Bubba Watson's Eagle on the 10th hole, where he holed an approach shot. Vijay Singh also had a Par putt on the 15th hole from well off the green. Matt Kuchar also really had to work for a Par on the 18th hole too.

Our leader is David Mathis who is -6 for the round, though there are plenty at -5 including Jacobson, last year's champion. Hopefully my favorites will stick around for the weekend
