Jhonattan Vegas is a rookie, but he sure isn’t playing like one. Through his first nine holes, Vegas has two birdies, an eagle and nary a bogey. He’s also taken just 13 putts and has a two-shot lead.
But a lot can change quickly at the Bob Hope Classic and there are a handful of players still in contention, including defending champion Bill Haas, who is 3 under through 10 holes and four shots back.
Also in the hunt is Brian Gay. He’s 10 under on his round and four back. but he also has just one hole left so he’ll need Vegas and others to go backwards.
