Tour Championship at Eastlake, Day 1

The Tour Championship (Fed Ex Cup finals) Day 1 is in the books from Eastlake Country Club in Atlanta, Georgia.  Atop the leaderboard is Billy Horshel and Chris Kirk (an Atlanta native) at -4.  Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk, Jason Day, and Patrick Reed are in second at -3.  Matt Kuchar (Georgia Tech grad and golf star) and Zach Johnson are in third at -2.  Adam Scott and Rory Mcilroy finished today’s play at -1.  The forecast in the ATL is for afternoon thunderstorms (great…) so play will begin early tomorrow at 10:00 am.  On a personal note, this golf course is the only course I have ever played!  You all know…college PE class!!  It has gone through quite a resurgence since that time…really great area and the charter schools are tops! That is a result of Atlanta real estate mogul Tom Cousins and his group investing in and rebuilding the area.  Anyhow…kind of cool that I actually “played” a round of golf there!   (It was pitiful!)

Tomorrow, Roger Federer and Stan the man Wawrinka will represent Switzerland as they host Italy in Davis Cup action.  Roger, now back to his place as the #1 ranked Swiss player will begin play in the first match.  Action will be broadcast at 2:00 pm EST on Tennis Channel.  Always ready to watch Mr. Federer play!

Happy Thursday everyone!
