Update 5:40 pm: And the J’s roll on! Justin Rose becomes the fifth consecutive J-Man to win a PGA Tour event. Jimmy, J.B., Jordan, Jim, and now Justin. Nicely done, Rosie!
Update 2:35 pm: Glad to see Jason Day get a birdie. It’s was starting to look like he was going to fade into the woodwork.
Update 2:00 pm: Maybe it’s still post-Masters hangover, or maybe it’s the two consecutive rain-affected tournaments, or maybe it’s the Match Play and Players coming up next, but I’m feeling very subdued about golf these days. I still have hope today is going to wind up a lot of fun, but I fear some guy I’m unenthused about will run away from the field.
Jason Day is seeking to become the fifth consecutive player to win a PGA Tour event whose first name begins with a “J.” I’m reaching out to Justin Ray for further details and perspective. I’ll keep you posted.
