Nice rebound: Fly opens 78-64

Jonathan Fly said he's played more than 500 rounds of golf at TPC Southwind. So you could imagine his frustration when he carded a 78 in his PGA TOUR debut on Thursday. "But I just told myself forget about it, it's just golf," Fly said on Friday. "Whatever happens, happens. I did the best I could today." His best was pretty good. Fly, a former University of Memphis golfer, holed out from the fairway for an eagle 2 on the first hole en route to a 6-under 64 in the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Fly made the cut on the number at 2 over. "Yesterday there were a lot of nerves, and making a 2 on 1 today kind of helped me settle into everything," said Fly, who was 179 yards away on No. 1. "Kind of got a bad break off the tee. Dropped straight down, I had a 6-iron into 1 and ended up making it. Good way to start." Fly, who is playing on a sponsor's exemption, also had seven birdies and three bogeys in his round. The hightlight -- other than his hole-out -- was sinking a 50-footer for birdie on No. 6. This season, Fly had a 72.16 average and was the Conference USA Championship medalist for the Tigers. He tied for 69th at the recent NCAA Championships at Riviera Country Club near Los Angeles, going 71-71-81. As for his expectations for Saturday? "I'll take another one of these," Fly said.
