Not such a good start for the two players in the field who have already hoisted the U.S. Junior Amateur trophy. Defending champion Jim Liu of Smithtown, N.Y., and 2009 winner Jordan Spieth of Dallas are a combined seven over par. Neither has completed nine holes yet. Liu was cruising along until making a quadruple-bogey 8 at the par-4 seventh hole. He is five over through eight holes. Spieth is two over through six holes.
Meanwhile, you should look at the card being produced by Cody Proveaux of Leesville, S.C. The 2012 Clemson commit didn't make a par through his first six holes and has just one 5 through 11 holes. He started birdie-birdie, then made a double bogey and followed with three more birdies before registering his first par at No. 7. He is one under par through 11 holes.
