Neither Vijay Singh nor Ernie Els has played in the Valero Texas Open before. Their debut isn’t exactly going as planned, either. Playing in the same group, Singh is 2 over and Els 3 over through 10 holes.
Singh has hit just half his greens in regulation and has already taken 17 putts. Els? He’s done the exact same, though things got particularly ugly on the par-4 10th for the Big Easy. His approach shot missed the green right, his next came out of the bunker sideways, followed by a chip on and a two-putt from just inside 12 feet.
Their playing partner, John Rollins, isn’t faring any better – he’s also 2 over through 10. Click here to follow the group live with Shot Tracker to see if they can turn it around on the easier side of the golf course. -- Brian Wacker
