Celtic Manor Wales Open
Thomas Bjorn, Nick Dougherty, David Frost, and Alan McLean are all tied at the top of the leaderboard at -5 after the first round. Pablo Larrazabal is the leading spaniard at -4. Disappointing news: Shane Lowry who had that great run a couple weeks back and won the Irish Open is currently in a tie for 145th after the first round. Hopefully he can move up. Corey Pavin is playing in this tournament and is tied for 62nd place. It's good to see an American play in Europe. Sure there are a few of them who do regularly - Anthony Kang, and recently Ben Curtis to name a few. But, I don't think Pavin ventures out of the US that often. Of course, Pavin's visit ties in with the next Ryder Cup, but it's still nice to see.
