The Dobson Ranch Crew Is Probably Glued to Their Televisions
As the Canadian Open rolls on, one young golfer is dominating Glen Abbey Golf Club.
Chez Reavie, Arizona State alumni and Mesa, AZ badass, is leading for the first time on the PGA Tour after rounds of 65-64.
Reavie is best known for winning the 2001 U.S. Amateur Public Links, landing an exemption into the Masters, and graduated to the big boys tour after an 18th place finish on the Nationwide Tour money list last season.
He's trying to claim this first victory with the likes of Sean O'Hair, Mike Weir and Anthony Kim chasing him, arguably the hottest golfer on tour.
If you've never played Dobson Ranch, the place Reavie grew up on, you're missing out. It's a great municipal track and the bar is always packed of those characters Rick Reilly writes about in his golf novel. Good stuff.
