Sabbatni shares Turning Stone lead
Rory Sabbatini and Omar Uresti topped a congested leaderboard after round one of the Turning Stone Resort Championship.
South Africa’s Rory Sabbatini and American Omar Uresti topped a congested leaderboard after the first round of the Turning Stone Resort Championship at Verona, New York.
The pair fired seven-under-par 65s in this US PGA event being contested by those players who missed out on a spot at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, and lead by a stroke from five players – including the little-known Chris Tidland, who had two holes to play of his first round when play was suspended due to darkness.
American Tidland was on six under alongside compatriot Brad Faxon, Englishman Brian Davis, German Alex Cejka and Australian Steve Elkington.
Uresti and Sabbatini both picked up seven birdies, five of them on the back nine, without dropping a shot.
Davis, Faxon, Cejka and Elkington also produced bogey-free rounds featuring six birdies.
Two of Davis and Elkington’s birdies came in their last three holes at the seventh and eighth.
Tidland dropped a shot on the 10th – his first – but recovered with four birdies before a further three up to the seventh hole as he sought to take a share of the lead.
Seven players followed at five under par, while 10 were a further shot behind on four under.
