Quote of the day

"We were fortunate we didn't have the wind that we normally have here, so it was getable." - First-round leader Jim Herman told the Golf Channel.

Good break/bad break of the day - Charles Howell III

Howell has a history with flagsticks, and it happened again Thursday. The 37-year-old's second shot was headed towards the hole, but smacked the stick and stayed out. He did make birdie at No. 16, one of the hardest holes on tour.
