Hear him Rory

Rory Sabbatini, who won here in 2006, got off to an inauspicious start Friday.
From the elevated tee high above the first fairway, he hooked his initial shot out of bounds and into the compound where the TV trailers are parked.
“I just didn’t have a chance to get a cup of coffee this morning, so I figured I would hit over in the trailers and see if they had any,” Sabbatini quipped.
“The first hole, you’ve got all the earth to the right. There’s no reason to hit it left on that hole. But for some reason this morning, my brain had not woken up yet, and I made a stupid mistake.”
Despite a bogey on No. 1, the easiest hole in terms of scoring average on the course, Sabbatini rebounded to shoot a 67 to finish at 7-under 135, which is currently one stroke out of the lead.
“I enjoy playing here. It fits my eye very well,” he said. “I drove the ball well and hit the irons well and I’m really enjoying hitting that new Callaway driver. The thing just goes forever.”
