First-time winner looks likely

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Judging by the leaderboard, the chances of having a first-time winner at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am are looking pretty good.

Only three of the top 15 players on the leaderboard – all within five strokes of the lead – have PGA TOUR victories to their credit.  The last first-time winner on TOUR came at the Bob Hope Classic three weeks ago when Jhonattan Vegas prevailed in a playoff.

Aaron Baddeley, who is tied for seventh, has two PGA TOUR wins, the last coming in 2007. And Stuart Appleby, who is tied for 11th, ended a four-year victory drought when he made the inaugural Greenbrier Classic his ninth TOUR win.

Kevin Sutherland, who joins Appleby in that five-way tie at 7 under, has one win to his credit – the 2002 World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship. – Helen Ross
