Atwal picks up where he left off

The last time we saw Arjun Atwal, he was hoisting the hardware for winning the Wyndham Championship. (Because he hadn’t accrued enough earnings by the RBC Canadian Open while playing on a Major Medical Exemption, Atwal lost his temporary status on the PGA TOUR; and even though he won Wyndham, he hadn’t earned enough points to make it into the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup.)

Well, it sure looks like the month off didn’t hurt Atwal any. He opened with a 66 Thursday at the Viking Classic, where he has a three-way share of the lead. At one point, Atwal made five birdies over seven holes in the middle of his round. He also missed just one green in regulation, despite hitting only six fairways.
