PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – So far this year, Mark Wilson has won every other week he’s played – starting with the Sony Open in Hawaii.
So given past history it should come as no surprise to see the FedExCup leader in contention early at the Northern Trust Open. After all, this is Wilson’s second start since he picked up his second win of the season at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Wilson started on the front nine Thursday and bogeyed his first hole. He’s made three birdies since – sinking putts of 12, 15 and 11 feet – to move to 2 under through 14 holes.
Jarrod Lyle, John Senden and Martin Laird are currently setting the pace at 4 under. – Helen Ross
