Jon Rahm’s ball hit a spectator’s head and actually got a favorable bounce into the first cut. The man is being tended to by medics but wished Rahm well on his round. An already very sweaty Jon Rahm loses his drive to the right-side rough and Rose finds the fairway. We’re off!
Leaderboard update: Gary Woodland just birdied No. 11 (his second hole) to get to -7 two shots clear of Rickie Fowler Kevin Kisner and Brandon Stone. Kisner birdied his first two holes today while Stone just birdied the par-3 16th. All three players opt to lay up and find the fairway with irons off the tee.
I’m surprised by the variety of big and short hitters at the top. DJ Rickie Woodland Day … and ZJ Gay and Kisner? Looks like Bellerive is more than a bomb-and-gouge setup which is what you want at a major.
