Stenson Gets a Pass Forward

Henrik Stenson

Triple bogey snuff out Jason Day chance to make a good pace at first round of Tour Championship. So much of a good start Jason Day had to face his bad luck. A cursed luck puts him behind Henrik Stenson which seems to be doing fine on this first round. It is rare to see world number hat to stand behind an old player like Stenson. The opening round for Day is one-under-69 this leads to a tie at 11th hole. This is six strokes behind Stenson which manage to set his position at seven-under-63. Right after he became world best golfer Day manage to prove his worth by making three birdies for the first three holes at East Lake Golf Club. Days’ phase is down when he fail to make another birdie for the next hole. It gets worse after he hit the ball outside the fence at the fifth hole.

Since the situation force him to re-tee, Day miss the green on his right. He manages to get to the fifth hole but had to miss a 10-foot putt thus he make his third bogey. At his point his awesome performance at the beginning of the round has reduced to nothing. He manages to get back under par after making birdie on eighth hole. This 27-year-old player is eventually making par-five 15th. At 16 he had to make another mistake that set him back to his previous position. Now he had to think a way to make birdies on round two thus he can once again claim his chance to $US10million bonus that offered by FedEx Cup. Those birdies would give him a chance to make the fifth winning from seven starts.

Stenson is now standing at the nice spot. He has the chance to win the game and earn additional bonus. Day’s finish won’t be able to change anything since he will get the bonus anyway. Everyone likes to see how he puts up his shows. He is initially racing to get eight-under while finishing up 12 holes. From this spot he shifts to slower pace by making four pars. A bogey is happened on 17th hole but it doesn’t do much damage to his good start. He is still ahead of Paul Casey from England by two strokes. Compared to Rory McIlroy the former number 1 golfer he would ha a tie. Zach Johnson the winner of British Open is four strokes under him.

Steven Bowditch is the fifth guy in this tournament is doing well with 68. At fourth first hole he makes two birdies and bogeys then walk through 14 and make two birdies at 15 and 16 holes. He knows that the game is tough and he can’t make too much mistakes. He thinks that such tension related to the condition of playing at the end of playoffs. He saw other guys play better than par but in his opinion getting a par is already good enough since it is already difficult to take a chance on making it.
