Looks like Boo Weekley has found his way around The Greenbrier – at least the Old White Course.
In a pre-tournament interview, Weekley was talking about how big this resort nestled in the Allegheny Mountains was.
“I might have to get my compass out to find my way back to the golf course and where I’m staying up there,” he said. “I come out of my motel room and I done got lost three times. I had to call my agent. How in the hell do I get where I’m going. He says, just try to get downstairs. I’m like, well, where is the elevator at.
“This place is big. I’m hoping that when I come out I’ll be able to play the game the way I know how to play. Hopefully, I can get jump-started because this would be a great place to get jump-started at.
“I feel like I could fit in here, minus the White House up the hill there.”
Weekley’s doing fine in all regards. He started on the back nine Friday and played his first 11 holes without a bogey – making the turn in 32 and rolling in a 4-footer for birdie at No. 2 to tie for the lead at 8 under. Weekley shares the lead right now with Scott Piercy and Briny Baird. – Helen Ross
