How tough is Harbour Town?

Answer: About the same as usual.

The field is averaging 71.304 midway through the first round, putting it on par from 2010, when the field averaged 71.013 over four rounds.

The 452-yard 18th hole played as the third-toughest in 2010, and it's playing the third-toughest today. Jason Dufner, who shot 67, nearly jarred his approach to the 18th when he hit his approach to less than a foot.

Tim Herron, who fired an early 65 to match his low round of the year, said the course was ripe for the taking.

"This could be the calmest I've ever seen Harbour Town play," Herron said. "If it doesn't rain, we're in for a good week, good test, just because the greens are getting firm. You know, it receives the ball from the fairway. But it's getting firmer on the greens, chipping and stuff. So it will be a good test."
