Hunter Mahan is Having a Decent Day
There is nothing like making a birdie on the first hole of the day. Tight par-4, a little nervous as you head out, a couple of good swings and you just carded your first red number. I guess an eagle works too.
Hunter Mahan, after an eagle on his first hole, is absolutely obliterating Ridgewood Country Club, moving to eight-under through 15 holes. The Oklahoma State freak of a golfer turned in four-under 31, then went on to birdie four of his first five holes on the back with a par-5 left to play.
Although highly unlikely, a birdie-eagle-birdie finish is that number you're not supposed to talk about. Not a bad way to kick off your FedEx Cup.
