The opening Saturday of the IGL Phoenix Open was played today at BIRDI Golf in Woodbury. The course featured wide fairways, lots of elevation and difficult, undulating greens. Putting proved to be the greatest challenge for players as many fell victim to approaching the green and putting from the wrong side of the pin.
Randal Taylor played exceptionally well, finishing with a 1 over 73. Brad Roigers followed up a solid 73 in the TCG Euro with a 4 over 76 and stands in 3rd place.
But the day belonged to Ron Christensen. Christensen mixed in solid tee to green play hitting a high % of fairways. Christensen finished at -4 under 68 with 4 birdies, and 0 bogies.
