Jeff Wilson, 47, a three-time medalist at the U.S. Mid-Amateur, closed out his first round today in style, going eagle-eagle to shoot a 62 at the Home Course.
"I'm still trying to figure what the heck happened," he said.
Wilson said he got on a roll on the 10th, 11th and 12th holes as his putter heated up.
His first eagle came at No. 8 (he started on No. 10) when he used a 3-wood to knock the ball 8 feet above the hole, which he eventually made. On No. 9, he chipped in with a wedge from 131 yards out.
"I made all the putts I should have and the putts I probably shouldn't have," said Wilson. -- Ken Klavon
