Back-to-back birdies for Austin

It’s another hot day in Memphis with the temperature currently at 91 degrees and the humidity near 70 percent. Add it all up and that’s a heat index north of 105 degrees, which is enough for the National Weather Service to have issued a heat advisory until 10 p.m. Monday. None of this has seemed to bother Woody Austin, though. He birdied each of his first two holes, hitting it to 4 feet and 2 feet, respectively. That gets Austin to 7 under and within four of Robert Garrigus’ lead.

With conditions only expected to get hotter throughout the afternoon, scoring conditions are going to get that much tougher for Garrigus, who tees off in about 10 minutes. If Austin can keep making birdies and post an early number, everyone out late might just wilt in the heat. -- Brian Wacker
