Villegas Tied for Lead in Sea Island
Friday, November 20, 2020

    The old adage "You can't tell the players without a scorecard" is a perfect fit for the RSM Classic, which kicked off yesterday at Sea Island, Georgia. Contested over two courses, the par-72 Plantation and the par-70 Seaside, the scores are skewered because of the difference in par, so it's hard to tell who's leading

    The Seaside course appeared to be a little on the easier side for the opener, and Camilo Villegas, who hasn't been on the lead in a PGA event in many a moon, is one of two who shot 6-under-64; the other is Matt Wallace.

    Four others posted 5-under 65s on the course - Robert Streb, Peter Malnati, Rory Sabbatini and Patton Kizzire. Villegas, who made six birdies and no bogeys, began with a bird on 10 and ended with his sixth on No. 9. The former Gator has been the subject of much media coverage since his young daughter tragically passed away earlier this summer.   

    On the Plantation course, 5-under 67s were carded by Keegan Bradley, Cameron Tringale, Adam Long and Doug Ghim. 

    Ted Potter had another disappointing day, posting a 38-36-74, 2 over on the Seaside course. Ted made three birdies, three bogeys and one double on a par-4, and has a long way to go on the Plantation today to reach the early cut line of 2 under.

    Gator Matt Every shot 1-over-73 on the Plantation course and Seminole Hank Lebioda shot likewise.
