Vegas birdies six straight

If you’re looking for the afternoon wave’s biggest threats to catch leaders Davis Love III and Matt McQuillan, look no further than rookie Jhonattan Vegas. The 2011 Bob Hope Classic champion opened with a par on No. 1 then birdied six consecutive holes before another par on No. 8. At 6 under, he’s currently just one shot off the lead, but has 10 holes remaining in his opening round. ( Click here to track the remainder of his round) The next best score on the course is 3 under. Currently five players still playing – Kris Blanks, Cameron Beckman, Jay Williamson, Kirk Triplett and Frank Lickliter II -- are at that number.
