Ryuji on a roll: Imada turns in 32

Ryuji Imada doesn’t exactly have a great record at THE PLAYERS Championship with two missed cuts, a tie for 45th and a tie for 65th. He’s in the lead right now, though, after making the turn in 32 with three straight birdies to close out the front. Among those birdies were a hole out from just off the green on No. 9 and a 28-foot putt on No. 7.

As good as that was, however, Imada wasn’t as good as Jerry Kelly on the front. Kelly turned in 31 with five birdies and no bogeys. The most amazing part about that? Kelly hit eight of nine greens despite hitting just three fairways.

In case you were wondering, the lowest front nine score ever recorded at TPC Sawgrass is a 30, shot by six players – most recently Chad Campbell in 2003 during the second round. J.C. Snead also shot a 30 in this tournament, but that was at Atlanta Country Club. -- Brian Wacker
