Compton on a birdie binge

Erik Compton’s story is well known by now. He’s survived two heart transplants and continues that battle still today. Right now, though, he’s taking pretty good advantage of the sponsor exemption he was given into this week’s field with seven birdies, including four in a row, over his last nine holes to get to 5 under and a share of the lead with six holes left in his round.

Compton, who has missed just two fairways and one green so far, has played in six PGA TOUR events this season, but he hasn’t finished than 30th (at Bay Hill), which also happens to be his best career finish on TOUR. -- Brian Wacker
