So don't be surprised to see very, very little red on the leaderboard.
As Phil Mickelson heads toward his first-round finish, Mike Weir has the lead at 2-under. And only five players, period, are under par at the moment. The lowest anyone has gone? Both Weir and K.J. Choi have gotten to 3-under -- briefly.
USGA setup-man Mike Davis and the course, as usual, are winning this ultimate examination. With a nice breezy assist, of course, from Mother Nature.
Looks like we're in for a four-day survival test. --
