Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin is making his presence felt early at Colonial.
The 50-year-old – who turned down a chance to play in the Senior PGA Championship this week – has birdied his first two holes to move to 14 under. He’s two strokes off the lead held by Brian Davis and Bryce Molder, who tee off in about 10 minutes.
Pavin made a 26-footer from the back fringe at the first hole, then added a 9-footer No. 2. The two-time Colonial champ is trying to win the tournament in the third straight decade.
