There are all sorts of low numbers being put up at The Greenbrier -- right now, the top six players on the leaderboard are a combined 37 under today alone. One of those low numbers belongs to Chris Stroud, who just shot an 7-under 63 with eight birdies an no bogeys.
That number easily could have been at least one lower if not for a missed 8-footer on the final hole. Still, the 63 betters his best score of the year by three strokes and matches his career low (twice, most recently at the 2009 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open).
And it couldn’t have come at a better time for Stroud, who entered the week 129th in the FedExCup standings. -- Brian Wacker
