Back tae auld claes and porridge

Well, with the Masters a distant memory normal service on the PGA Tour has been resumed at the RBC Heritage over the Harbour Town course. Most of the leading players are missing this, so, it's a chance for someone to make their mark this week. Who's on your radar for this week ?

Wow ! Luke Donald has found something and shot a 65 in his opening round. Been a while since he scored like that, even over a course he likes and has played well in the past. Here's hoping he can use this as a confidence booster and have a good week.

Watched some of the Sky coverage on Friday night. Luke Donald playing well, even if some loose shots threatened to derail things.  He managed to get back on track and posted a good score on a breezy afternoon. Got to be good for his confidence going into the weekend joint leader. Poulton playing well and sitting well up the leader board.  Could be a good weekends golf ahead.

Donald now 4 back overnight and Poulter 3 back from Duffer at -13 despite an incident with an alligator!  Some good players bunched at top for last round at a course Donald plays well despite I believe not finishing higher than 3rd.

I think Luke has finished 2nd more than once. He certainly finished 2= last year and Kuchar beat him by 1 shot in 2014.

Yup I stand corrected, and unlucky for him to miss out again this year as runner up to the rookie Brian. Let's hope more to come from Luke this year leading into Ryder Cup.

A poor front nine, I thought he was gone when he dropped to -7 .... but he showed a bit of resilience in there today. Great comeback to get to -12. Shame it was just short.
