Poulter Takes Round One at Firestone, Woods and Mickelson to Play Exhibition 1 on 1 Thanksgiving Weekend, Wie Leads Round One of Women’s British Open and Alexander Zverev Beats Brother Mischa at Washington Open
English golfer Ian Poulter led round one of the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone yesterday, finishing with 8 under par, according to PGATour.com. Rickie Fowler is right behind Poulter with 7 under par and pre-tournament favourite Dustin Johnson, who recently won the Canadian Open, finished the day with just 1 under par. Tiger Woods scored his best opening round of the year so far, with 4 under par. The AP quotes Woods on his performance:
"If you would have offered me this at the start of the day, I would have snapped your arm for it," he said. "Yeah, we can be greedy and say I'd love to have holed that putt on 8 to have tied the record. But 8 under par's a pretty decent round for me around this golf course."
Woods and Phil Mickelson look to be having their head-to-head televised exhibition match on Thanksgiving weekend, according to CNN. Mickelson confirmed the rough date for the $10 million match at the Bridgestone Invitational yesterday.
"As we firm up more and more details we'll let everybody know, but right now we know it's going to be Thanksgiving weekend for sure," he said.
LPGA.com reports that American Michelle Wie finished in the lead with 8 under par at the Women's British Open first round yesterday. Just trailing Wie in round one was South Korean In-Kyung Kim with 7 under par and American Lindy Duncan with 6 under par.
"I had a lot of fun out there today. The views were just so spectacular here, you kind of get lost in the view sometimes," Wie said about the morning's idyllic conditions. "I'm really proud of myself how I took advantage of conditions this morning."
German Alexander Zverev beat his brother Mischa 6-3, 7-5 at the Washington Open yesterday to advance to the quarter-finals. The Associated Press quotes Mischa on losing to his younger sibling:
"A lot of different feelings. First of all, happiness; I was proud. When we were at the coin toss and then took the picture and I walked back to the baseline, I had to, like, a little bit fight my tears, because I felt like, 'It just finally came true,'" said Mischa, who turns 31 in a few weeks, while Alexander is 21. "Because we've been playing against each other in the backyard in our mini-tennis court and imagining that we would play against each other, like, in a Grand Slam final."
