Matt Fitzpatyk hasn’t won in America yet, but now would be a good time to start. He is watching the brilliant, fighting 68 yesterday with a birdie at 11 this morning. He rises to -3, where he was joined by Joaquin Niemann, another young player who would not be delighted if he lifted the Vanamaker trophy this week. Opening a birdie at 10 for a 23-year-old Chilean.

-4: Thomas (6 *), Hoge, Zalataris
-3: Fitzpatrick (2 *), Neiman (1), Anser, Kuchar

The world number one Scotty Scheffler this week didn’t go that far, his frustration was revealed last night when he started repeatedly beating his bag to his driver when he found the 18th water. As a result, he got one over 71, which could have been much worse. There are no big changes today. It starts with four pairs in a row, the last of which is a bit disappointing on the 13th pair-five, any chance that the bird has disappeared after a century, moving pebbles into the bunker under the supervision of a judge, only to pick up too many balls from his chip. The Masters Champion remains +1.

Reaching the top, Justin Thomas immediately falls off it. He soaks his threesome on the 14th pair-three into the bunker at the front, and can’t escape because of the ridge that runs across the green field. He leaves himself a complicated curler on the mountain that he can’t do. He returns to his tie for a second.

-4: Thomas (5 *), Hoge, Zalataris

K. H. Lee is a man of form. Last week, the 30-year-old South Korean became only the fourth man in history to successfully defend Byron Nelson. This is not a feat given the other three – Sam AIDS, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson! However, he has a terrible record in major championships: five appearances, five missed results. However, it looks good to break this regret this week. 69 yesterday and a 30-yard bird rake at 6 moved it to -2 overall.

The 13th pair-five was the lightest hole on the golf course yesterday, hitting an average of 4.84 throws and giving up 42 birds. No wonder Justin Thomas just picked up his second birdie of the day on the hole. He looks in the mood to post anything to give Rory McIlroy a pause for reflection this afternoon … and has already joined him at the top of the list of leaders!

-5: Thomas (4 *), McIlroy
-4: Hoge, Zalataris
-3: Anser, Kuchar
-2: Lowry (5 *), Lee (6), Guch (7), Riley, Na, Smith, Schaufele, Pereira, Kirk, Neiman, Herbert, Fitzpatyk

Back to back birdie for Shane Lowry! It comes on the 14th pair-three, rewarding for beating his tee to eight feet. He is -2, and on Sky Sports lady Laura Davis notes that Lowry will not be upset by these conditions at all, as he grew up playing in the breeze in Ireland. The wind is getting stronger.

Anirban Lahiri – who led this year’s players after three rounds and finished the week one shot and one place behind the winner Cam Smith – became a father last weekend. A 30-year-old man from India has just sent his blow to a 214-year-old pair-three, 6th in a row on the flag. One bounce, and he … well, not in, but balancing on the edge of the hole. So close to the hole in one to wet a baby’s head! It will go to +4 and everything will help if you are trying to survive the incision.

Shane Lowry was not the happiest last night, wondering and trembling when he unnecessarily whistled into the water of the 13th 5th digit. However, he was still going over his face value and eventually signed the 70th level. Now the same hole has returned something: the bird that brings the 2019 Open champion into the red. Pit -1.

Local guy Talor Guch won his first PGA Tour event earlier this season at the RSM Classic. The 30-year-old Oki is also finding his place in the major competitions, having survived a drop at last year’s PGA and Open, and finished 14th at the Masters last month. Last night he shot a very respectable 69, and this morning he was making a birdie on the 5th pair of five monsters (660 yards today) and climbing to -2.

Speaking of engines and shakers (which we kind of were), there were some early actions at the top of the leaderboard. 2017 champion Justin Thomas last night played nine in 32 strokes, so has already proven he can do it in difficult conditions. This morning he flew out of the traps, shoving his second 10-6 feet and making a birdie. He is now just one of Rory McIlroy’s leaders.

The wind pushed the PGA to action. Today the mowers were not sent for greens, fearing that the gusts would not move the balls and calculate the lottery. It’s usually more of a problem at the open championships – if memory serves, the wind wreaked havoc on the greenery in Sandwich in 2011 and St. Andrews in 2015 – but we’re all here. As an additional illustration, the official Twitter feed published the following:

Weather report

According to the forecast, 24 hours in Tulsa will be stormy. This morning the field will break with gusts of up to 40 miles per hour, with a constant wind of 20 to 25 miles per hour. In the afternoon, the second wave of beginners will be pleased to experience lower winds – an average of 10 to 15 miles per hour with gusts of no more than 20 miles per hour – but they will have to deal with lower temperatures, downpours and perhaps even thunderstorms. . Will everyone get by today? This is not true, in the evening expected “strong” storms with stronger winds, hail and heavy rain. Fasten up!

Preamble

We have a long day ahead of us when the players are selected for the position before tomorrow’s Relocation Day. Friday hustle and bustle? Need to work hard, but a good ear mite Van McCoy. Anyway, a strong wind, plus the Damocles threat of a cut, means that this wind can stretch. A lot of drama, joy, excitement and heartache awaits us. This is what the top of the leaderboard looks like after the first round …

-5: McIlroy

-2: Riley, Na, Smith, Schaufele, Pereira, Kirk, Neiman, Herbert, Fitzpatyk
