Good weather warms Goydos’ game

Forty-six-year-old Paul Goydos started his round with a bogey on the par-4 10th, but as the morning went on and temperatures warmed, so did his game. He picked up some momentum at the turn and was bogey free on the front nine, carding a six-under 65. “I seem to play better in hot weather,” he said. “If it would have been a cold, windy week here, I wouldn't be sitting here probably. I would still be figuring out how to play in Vegas.” Lucky for Goydos, the forecast for the rest of the week at the Frys.com Open is warm and sunny. Goydos hadn’t touched a club in two weeks, after serving as an assistant captain for the U.S. team at the Ryder Cup, an experience he credits for his solid play Thursday. “It is really inspiring to be around those guys. I definitely think it helped my mental attitude toward the game,” he said. “I don't know that it helped my physical ability to play the game, but those guys -- you are sitting in a room, in a sense, around 24 of the best 30 players in the world there, with all due respect to the President's Cup, all International teams. Definitely 24 of the best 36 players in golf. That's going to be good for your game, I got news for you.” Replay Goydos’ first round with Shot Tracker.
