SEASON IN REVIEW: Van Pelt is looking for his first victory of the season but he certainly must have felt like a winner at the BMW Championship, played for the first time in his home state of Indiana where the crowds offered him tremendous support. He responded well, too, grabbing a share of the first-round lead with a course-record tying 64 and going on to tie for 10th. That was his ninth top-10 of the season, which leads the PGA TOUR. He also finished second at AT&T National. -- Helen Ross

EAST LAKE HISTORY: Van Pelt is making his third start at East Lake. He finished ninth here last year after finishing 24th in his debut in 2010.

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at Van Pelt:
In my opinion, has improved his putting more than anyone else on TOUR this season. A top 10 machine. The key to winning is giving yourself lots of chances, and this could be his week.
