Alex Prugh has extended his lead to two shots thanks to five birdies and no bogeys through his first 14 holes. So far, Prugh has missed just two greens and he’s averaging just over 1.5 putts per green in regulation.
As a rookie on the PGA TOUR, this is obviously Prugh’s first PLAYERS Championship. The last player to win here in their first appearance was Craig Perks in 2002.
Meanwhile, there is a logjam of players behind Prugh -- Troy Matteson, Stephen Amex, J.B. Holmes and Ben Crane are all 2 under at the moment. -- Brian Wacker
