It seems like everyone is going low here in the morning wave. Chris Couch is 5 under as he finishes up on No. 18, but the most impressive thing about his round is the pair of eagles he made on Nos. 11 and 15. Couch hit his approach on the par-5 11th to just over 3 feet and four holes later he rolled in another eagle putt, this time from just inside 29 feet.
Today’s round has moved Couch inside the top 15 for now and more importantly puts him that much closer to securing his card for the rest of the year after opening the season with a Major Medical because of shoulder surgery that has plagued him since 2008. -- Brian Wacker
