Steve Jones tries to use some body english to help his chip go in at the TPC. He shot an amazing 64 in the first round of The Player’s Championship.

More amazing than his 64 is that he took the entire year off in 2004 due to injury, then comes in to the best field in golf and smokes the rest of the top 50 in the world.

The question will be can he keep up the pace he set? Fred Funk, Lee Westwood & Zach Johnson are all one shot behind at 65.

Fred Funk taps in on 18.

The “big 4” all registered rounds under par. Tiger had 4 birdies and 2 bogeys and missed several putts under 10 feet.

Phil Mickelson bogeyed 17 & 18 to shoot 70.

Ernie Els shot 71 and Vijay Singh had the best performance of the big 4 with a 5 under 67.

I imagine these will be the lowest scores of the tournament with the soft greens. The rough will be getting longer, and the greens harder.
