Hearn moves quickly on Moving Day

By Stan Awtrey, PGATOUR.COM Correspondent

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- David Hearn didn’t dally as he played solo at Harbour Town on Saturday. Because of the odd number of players who made the cut, Hearn was the first one off the tee at 8:25. Less than three hours later he was finished, nearly three holes ahead of the next group.

Hearn wound up with a 2-under 69, but it wasn’t easy. He had three birdies on the front nine and turned in 33, then bogeyed three of the first five holes on the back nine. Hearn recovered to make birdie at No. 15 and 16 and made par on the final two holes, getting up and down from off the green at No. 17 and nearly making a 39-foot birdie putt at No. 18.

Hearn, exempt this year through his success on the Nationwide Tour, is now 2-under for the tournament and unlikely to be the first man off the tee on Sunday morning.
