Given some of the numbers popping up on the leaderboard, conditions appear to be ripe for scoring at TPC Louisiana, where Josh Teater is putting together easily the day’s best round at 8 under through 15 holes.
Teater, whose best career finish was a tie for third at last year’s Turning Stone Resort Championship, has birdied six of his last 10 holes and has eight birdies in all.
So far, he’s hit eight of a dozen fairways and 13 of 15 greens on his way to what looks to be the best round of his career. As such, he currently has the lead at 11 under.
Teater is hardly the only one going low, however. John Senden is already in with a 5-under 67, while David Hearn is 5 under through his first 11 holes. Even Chris DiMarco, who for the most part has had an abysmal season, is trending up at 4 under with a couple of holes left in his round.
