Sutherland ties course record

So much for Brent Delahoussaye holding the course record by himself. About 24 hours after Delahoussaye shot an 8-under 62, Kevin Sutherland did the same.

Sutherland closed out his round with a front-nine 29, though he actually began his day with a birdie on No. 9 before making two more birdies and an eagle over his next three holes for a 5-under start through his first four holes.

As mentioned earlier, the biggest difference between Sutherland’s opening 73 and his 62 on Friday was putting. He took 10 fewer putts with just 24 on Friday, which included going 12-for-13 from inside 10 feet and 3-for-3 on putts from 10 to 15 feet.

Also, the 62 by Sutherland is a career-low -- seven times previously Sutherland had recorded a 63, most recently at the 2008 Frys.com Open. -- Brian Wacker
