Ridings riding high so far

Things are looking up this week for Tag Ridings. After missing the cut last week at the John Deere Classic, where bogeys and double bogeys littered his scorecard, Ridings is 4 under and near the lead early in the opening round of the Viking Classic.

Ridings has yet to win a PGA TOUR event and he hasn’t had a top-10 finish since 2009, but if he continues to play like this that could change this week.

Perhaps he’s feeling his old competitive edge from his collegiate days; the Viking Classic is played in SEC country and Ridings went to the University of Arkansas.

Through 13 holes, Ridings is bogey free and has two birdies and an eagle.
