The Sanford International starts next Friday, but there’s a PGA Tour Champions event currently underway in Michigan.
Brandt Jobe carded an opening round 65 and leads by one stroke over Esteban Toledo, Jeff Maggert and Vijay Singh. Minnesota native Tom Lehman is two shots off the lead, while Onida native Tom Byrum shot an opening round 69. Every player on this leader board is scheduled to play in next week’s Sanford International.
A side note, John Daly, who’s slated to play in next week’s event, withdrew on the ninth hole due to a neck/shoulder issue. He was 5-over-par at the time.
