De Jonge matches career low

Interview: Brendon de Jonge

Following an opening-round 62, Brendon de Jonge reflects on his play in the 2012 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with Dennis Paulson from SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio.

Ryan Moore wasn’t the only player to go low at the birdie-friendly Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Brendon de Jonge matched his career low with a 62 to move within one of Moore in the opening round.

De Jonge made nine birdies and no bogeys Thursday, including four birdies in a five-hole stretch at one point. He also took just 27 putts after hitting 16 greens in regulation.

The 32-year-old South African’s TOUR card is already secured for next year -- he came into the week 58th on the money list -- but a good week in Las Vegas and a strong Fall Finish could move him into the top 30, which would lock up a spot in next year’s Masters.
