Ted Potter got off to an inauspicious start yesterday in the first round of the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head, with another disastrous double bogey leading him to a 3-over-par 74. The early projected cut line over the Harbour Town Golf Links is 3 under, so he will have to shoot the lights out today to make it to the weekend.
Ted played the front nine first and made two birdies and two bogeys for an even-par 36. But a double-bogey 6 on No. 10 began his slide on the back. He also made one birdie and two bogeys for a 3-over 38. On the par 5s, which Ted usually picks up a lot of ground, he made one birdie and two bogeys despite hitting 11 of 14 fairways.
Ian Poulter and Mark Hubbard too the first-round lead with 7-under 64s. There was a logjam at 65 among Webb Simpson, Ryan Palmer, Dylan Frittelli, Sebastian Munoz, Brice Garnett and Viktor Hovland.
Tied for 16th with 4-under 67s were both Seminoles, Brooks Koepka and last week's winner in Texas, Daniel Berger. Bill Horschel was best of the Gators with a 2-under 69, while Brian Gay shot 71 and Matt Every 74.
