Matt Kuchar picked up where he left off after a win at the Players Championship a week ago. Kuchar fired a 4-under par round of 66.
And while he doesn’t hold the first round lead, it does go to show how well he is playing at this point in the season.
Kuchar went out in the afternoon on Thursday, and is already on the course in the morning wave on Friday.
But there are some big names still yet to go out this afternoon in the late way of play on Friday. That includes Phil Mickelson and Adam Scott, who are both paired in the same grouping. Neither Player was able to get into red number after Day 1. Mickelson carded an even par round of 70, while Scott shot a 73.
Their playing partner Ernie Els equaled Mickelson’s number on the day of 70.
So the group goes out this afternoon, with a new edition of Byron Nelson Classic 3-Ball Betting Odds for Friday’s round.
Mickelson is set as the favorite in the group to shoot the low round, going off at +140 on the amount wagered. Scott comes in next, but a second-straight 73 likely won’t get it done unless this group collapses. Els for the second-straight day rounds out this group, going off at +220.
TPC Four Seasons proved to be a difficult course to navigate on Day 1, with the unpredictable weather in Texas.
Coverage for Round 2 of the Byron Nelson Classic gets underway on the Golf Channel Friday afternoon at 2 pm ET.
