Brian Stuard shoots 64 to take lead in suspended Barbasol
Play was suspended twice in the afternoon because of rain and lightning, with 30 players unable to finish before dark. After dropping a stroke on the par-4 18th to finish his opening nine, Stuard birdied five of the next six holes in the morning round at Keene Trace. “I felt like my iron play was nice today,” Stuard said. Stuard won the rain-shortened Zurich Classic of New Orleans in 2016 for his lone PGA Tour title. “It was a good start, but in all honesty, it doesn’t really mean much,” Stuard said.wftv.com
DeChambeau blasts his way to 62 and lead in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS – Bryson DeChambeau put on another power display Thursday and it worked just as well as when he won the U.S. Open. “I was not happy it didn't go in, but I'll take a 62,” said DeChambeau, who won this tournament two years ago. It was the perfect recipe for Las Vegas, with the warm desert air and barely a breath of wind. This is the only tournament DeChambeau plans to play ahead of the Masters on Nov. 12-15, which means skipping a pair of big-purse, no-cut fields in Las Vegas and California the next two weeks. DeChambeau played alongside two other big hitters, U.S. Open runner-up Matthew Wolff and Cameron Champ, who hits it as far as DeChambeau without looking as though he's trying as hard.
