The craziest, mind boggling, almost spokey thing happened at Riviera today. Despite the hottest player in golf, Brandt Snedeker, not
playing, someone with his first name finished third. Little known Brandt Jobe is just two strokes off the leaderboard.
Despite his interruption, the top guys of the tournament so far have been very popular players. Sergio Garcia is in second place, and the 22nd best player in the world, Matt Kuchar, has the lead. The two birdied four similar holes. Garcia finished one stroke behind at -6.
An interesting group has surfaced at three below as well. Lee Westwood, Jim Furyk and Fred Couples all sit there and should make for an entertaining round if they can stick together.
It is still the first day however, so there will be a lot of change over the next three days.
