Rich Beem has been out of action on TOUR since undergoing back surgery in May, but the three-time TOUR winner shot only 72 in the first round. With the field averaging 69.181 on Day 1, Beem will need a round in the 60s on Friday to make the cut.
It might be a long way back. Beem played a pair of Nationwide Tour events this fall in preparation for his return, but he didn't break 70 in either of them, missing two cuts.
