Spieth and Palmer share lead at team event in New Orleans

Spieth and Palmer share lead at team event in New Orleans

Jordan Spieth and his Texan pal Ryan Palmer earned a share of the lead after a almost flawless Thursday foursomes opener.

"I've always wondered how it worked, and it's amusing, if you're seen the movie "Draft Day, ' it's pretty close to that", Palmer said". And when the putter is rolling, it makes it not as hard to make those 5-footers. "Palmer, who had missed birdie at the fourth from 5'1", got the squad on the board with birdie-4 at seven and went back-to-back at eight, both from inside of 12 feet.

Jordan Spieth is one of the world's best golfers, but the 23-year-old's fascination with sports transcends his profession. "We hit a lot of greens and we were able to roll a few in".

Brian Stuard, who won the Zurich Classic past year on his own, has Chris Stroud as a teammate. He made a 20-foot putt to at least escape with bogey and a 68.

"I hate to say it", Campbell said, "but they were struggling through the first five holes and we got way out of position". Payton said early in April that the quarterback class was pretty good, and that the Saints would "absolutely" consider drafting a quarterback as early as the first round if they felt the value was right.

Palmer was New Orleans head coach Sean Payton's guest in the Saints war room during the closing moments leading up to the Saints first selection in the 2017 NFL Draft.

"I've always wondered how it (the draft) worked", Palmer said. Ariya Jutanugarn and Michelle Wie were a stroke back along with Katherine Kirk, Jennifer Song, Sung Hyun Park, Sandra Changkija, and Marina Alex.

They also birdied the course's other par-5 holes, the second and seventh. She saved par with a 30-foot putt. "I think he missed two all day, and he didn't miss a shot for the first 10 holes". Defending champion Jenny Shin bogeyed two of her three last holes for a 71.
