Goggin in with a 64

Mathew Goggin didn’t exactly come into this week riding a wave of momentum. Well, not a positive one anyway. Goggin has missed seven of his last nine cuts and for the year has missed 11 of 16. So what was the difference Thursday, when he shot a bogey-free 6-under 64?

Goggin is also back to using his regular driver after switching to a slightly longer one at the start of the season.

“I started swinging the club wrong and had some bad habits for whatever reason,” Goggin said. “You lose a bit of confidence.”

Six birdies should give the Brit plenty of confidence going into the second round. -- Brian Wacker
