K.J. Choi isn’t showing any side effects after spending last week playing four rounds with Tiger Woods at The Masters. Choi played great golf last week with his fourth place finish at Augusta and continued to go low at the first round of The Verizon Heritage. Choi made his way around Harbour Town Golf Links with a seven under 64 to lead Mike Weir and Greg Owen by two strokes. Choi has got some major game: he has seven PGA Tour wins and eight international victories. If he didn’t put his ball in the back bunker on thirteen at Augusta last week he would have given Phil a run for his money. Don’t be surprised if he goes wire to wire for the win.
Welcome to the real world of professional golf. Jerry Rice had a difficult day at The Nationwide Tour’s Fresh Express Classic. His round of 83 included five bogeys, four doubles and a lone birdie. It’s not the way the hall of famer wanted to debut but this is real, professional golf. It’s not Trumps show or a celebrity tournament. Like they say in the ad, these guys are good.
