Prugh cools off, but shoots 64

In year filled with record performances in the scoring department, it appeared for a little while that rookie Alex Prugh would have a shot at becoming the first player on TOUR to fire a 58.

For a little while on Friday, anyway. His early 64 still gave him the early lead.

Prugh, who secured his 2011 PGA TOUR card with a tie for second in the Frys.com Open last week, started off innocently enough on Friday. After birdieing his first three holes at TPC Summerlin, he parred the easy par-5 13th. But it didn't exactly kill his momentum.

Prugh stuck his tee shot to 27 feet on the par-3 14th and made the putt, then went for the green on the drivable par-4 15th. His tee shot finished 41 feet away ... and he made that putt too. He then hit the par-5 16th hole in two and two-putted for birdie, putting at 7 under after 7 holes.

He cooled off from there. He parred his next six holes before birdieing the par-3 fifth, but he gave that shot back with a bogey on the next hole.
