PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Mark O’Meara is finishing up his first round now … and it’s been a good one.
The Champions Tour player is 5 under through 17, which puts him in a tie for third. O’Meara has six top-10 finishes at THE PLAYERS Championship.
O’Meara has the best round going among the afternoon wave. David Toms, Graeme McDowell and Steve Stricker are each 4 under on their rounds with a handful of holes still left to play.
Nick Watney will likely be the first-round leader when the dust settles after his 8-under 63 in the morning.
