Riley headed in right direction

Even though they’re playing lift, clean and place at Waialae today, scores aren’t exactly super low. Still, Chris Riley is off to a good start with a 66.

“I'm kind of tentative today, and I usually like to be aggressive,” said Chris Riley, who is two shots off the lead. “First tournament of the year, this is a difficult golf course for guys. I can see how guys start at the Bob Hope where it's kind of just slap it around, wedge it on and it's a birdie putt, where here, par‑70, it's a tough golf course. It's tough to start the year here.”

For Riley, though, it’s a step in the right direction. Last year was the first time he cracked $1 million in earnings since the 2004 season and his three top-10s in 2010 were more than he had in the previous three years combined.
