Round 1 saw a lot of low scores with Kris Blanks shooting the low round with a 63 to lead by 1 shot from David Love III, Matt McQuillan and Steve Marino. Only a couple of shots back is Steve Stricker, the 2 time defending champion. If he putts as good as he did when he won at 'Jacks' he'll be hard to beat again this week. The best of the aussies after the first round is Cameron Percy who matched Stricker with a 5 under 66. Mike Weir, the former Masters champion continues to have a season to forget. With only 2 cuts made from 13 events and an opening 4 over 75 he looks to have yet another weekend off. His world ranking has ballooned from 21st (2 years ago) to currently 445!
The leading squads after the first round are BigBillP, billp, Dragonwinner, Hagler and Pippolo who will all be hoping Steve Marino can come from behinsd to win his first PGA event. GoTigerWoods2000, the current overall leader doens't look like he'll add to his prize money this week as he only has 1 player teeing it up and after the first round he's way back in 111th position. We could have another change at the top at the end of the tournament!!
