Price birdies No. 15
Nick Price holes out from the bunker for a birdie on the par-3 15th hole.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- It has been more than three years since Nick Price last played in a PGA TOUR event, but the South African’s name popped up on the leaderboard late Thursday when he moved to 1 under after a birdie at the 15 th hole.
Price is currently tied for sixth place.
Price won The Honda Classic in 1994, and he gained entry into this week’s field by taking his one-time exemption for being in the top-50 on the all-time money list.
"My game is definitely in a lot better shape than the last time I played on the PGA TOUR in 2008," Price said earlier this week. "I'm just happy to be out here to be honest and just to enjoy and see some familiar faces. I'm amazed at how many of the guys, the officials and caddies that are still out there, some of them should be on the Champions Tour with us." -- Criag Dolch
