At first it looked like Steve Flesch would go low at TPC Summerlin.
Then, if only for a brief couple holes, Billy Mayfair was on 59
watch. With much of the morning wave on its back nine now, the
leaderboard is shaping up much like a 2010 Thursday leaderboard
that featured five players tied for the 18-hole lead at 7 under and
five others one shot off the pace. Currently, there are eight
players -- Flesch, John Merrick, Matt Jones, Rod Pampling, Nick
Watney, Robert Garrigus, Nathan Green and Paul Stankowski -- tied
atop the leaderboard at 5 under with six checking in one shot off
the pace at 4 under. Much can, and will, change between now and
tonight’s conclusion of play but early indications are that
tonight’s leaderboard may be just as packed, if not more
crowded, than last year’s.
