A year on from Rory Mcilroy’s meltdown at last year’s Honda Classic the Northern Irishman leads this year’s edition. The 2012 winner carded five birdies on his back nine to finish day one a stroke clear of Russell Henley at seven under par.
Elsewhere in the field Tiger Woods had a tougher time of it. The world number one finished his day eight shots behind McIlroy - 22 years to the day since he made his PGA debut. Zach Johnson was a relieved man after carding a round of 67. Playing alongside Tiger Woods and Keegan Bradley, the American began his day with a quadruple bogey at the 11th. The 2007 Masters champion, tweeted his relief after responding with seven birdies to leave him well in contention.
On the LPGA Tour Karrie Webb has extended her lead to two strokes after two days of the HSBC Women’s Champions. The Australian’s round of 69 means she’s two clear of Angela Stanford.
And we end the week with this from US Women’s Soccer player Sydney Leroux…The Olympic champion attempted her very best Happy Gilmore but failed spectacularly…We’ve been watching it all morning and it’s still getting funnier every time we see it.
That’s all for this week, as ever find us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the #GWTV.
