Victor Hovland opened the tournament with a three-stroke tie on Thursday. She finished 10th after the first day.
Hovland summed up his run as “totally solid,” but had to see that he was five strokes behind leading duo John Ram and Justin Thomas after the first round.
Ram was about to finish the role when Hovland came out just before 7 NST. The world champion provided another consistent round in a somewhat simpler relationship, this time four strokes below par, thus setting the standard for the rest of the field.
For Hovland, it started off well, too. A birdie on hole 1 gave him the start he wanted, but on hole 6, the simplest hole on the field, he got into trouble. From about 200 meters he sent the second shot over hole 5 in the water and had to notice the first ghost of the round.
The birds on holes 8 and 10 meant that Hovland again approached the top tier, but the new birds waited and instead there was a ghost on hole 14 after a weak shot on the short hole 3. With the birds on each of the last three holes, it was no Still a good day for Hovland, who consequently made a four-stroke run under par.
