Top shots from Valero - Thursday Day 1


Recommended Posts

So with the afternoon groups of Day 1 well underway, and only 14 players currently under par (no one having finished their round under par at this point, I might add) - it'd be fair to say that it's been pretty tough out there - wind advisory and sustained 20-30mph gusts. There has been some pretty good use of the wind on occasion, and some great shots in general though... here are some of my favorites thus far...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...and, of course, there was this from Phil...

Hey! Phil's club almost looks like mine. I think we even had the same expression on our faces. :huh:

That wind is really blowing, and if I was Phil, I don't know how I would have stayed so passive.  I probably would have flipped out.

From NBC Sports:  Troy Merritt posted an image on Twitter of his 2-iron with a blown-out face.  His tee shot on the par-4 11th at TPC San Antonio  traveled 155 yards, according to ShotLink,  and he bogeyed the hole en route to a 2-over 74. He finished at +6 yesterday.
