FT. WORTH INVITATIONAL 1st ROUND SUMMARY

The longest running non-major tour event, at one site, continues its run as a new sponsor in Charles Schwab. Since 1946 the PGA has hosted the Ft. Worth Invitational at Colonial Country Club.

Colonial Country Club has a long history and his home to the Horrible Horseshoe consists the 2nd toughest 3-5 hole stretch on Tour.

  • 3rd Hole     483yds     Par 4     +0.129 strokes over par last year
  • 4th Hole     247yds     Par 3     +0.018 strokes over par last year
  • 5th Hole     481yds     Par 4     +0.291 strokes over par last year

Hometown PGA Tour Professional Jordan Spieth seems to be having a resurgence lately. This would be fantastic for all golf fans. Per usual, when Jordan is back at it, it is because of his putting. Jordan was #1 in birdies, putting, and putts per GIR. This resulted in a stellar 65 (-5) which is good for a T2.

The bomber Tony Finau is your leader after todays round. Working his way to a 64 (-6) with an average drive of 325 yards and was #1 in GIR. Tony is looking for his 2nd PGA Tour win, can he go wire-to-wire?

What does the home of Ben Hogan have in store for the remainder of this weekend?
