Low scores ahead?
According to Anthony Kim, the USGA decided to "do the players a favor" by moving up several tee boxes and using some much easier pin locations. Kim and Ryuji Imadad both finished under par, at 1 under, and several other early starters are having good rounds. Brandt Snedeker is 4 under through 13, including an eagle on No. 13. Heath Slocum is 3 under, Phil Mickelson teed off about 40 minutes ago and is 1 over after two thanks to a bogey on No. 2.
The marine layer that has been around for much of the week is back again, keeping temperatures cooler and making the golf course a little softer and receptive to scoring. It will be interesting to see who, if any of the leaders, make a big move today.
