Golf: Appleby grinds out slim lead

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson David Toms missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that could have caught Appleby, settling for an even-par 73 to join U.S. Open champion Michael Campbell (72), former U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk (72) and three-time major champion Vijay Singh (74) at 2-under 144. Sergio Garcia (74) and Olin Browne (76) were the only other players to survive par on a Plantation course that was tough on lightning-quick greens that moved to warp speed when the gusts were at a peak. The course average was 75.5, the toughest round in the eight-year history at Kapalua, and the wind is responsible for most of that. Appleby figured the wind alone made the course as many as five shots harder. “It’s more of a grind,” he said. “You have to work harder to put a score on the card. There’s no real run of birdies.” Fifteen players were within five shots of the lead. KAPALUA, Hawaii — The scenery suggests a vacation in paradise. The golf was all work Friday in the Mercedes Championships, in which defending champion Stuart Appleby survived 35 mph gusts for a 1-under par 72 to take a one-shot lead into the weekend. The trade wind was among the fiercest since this season-opening event moved to Kapalua in 1999, but the name atop the leaderboard should look familiar. Appleby is trying to become the first player in nearly 50 years to capture the winners-only tournament three consecutive times. But it hasn’t been easy. He hit his tee shot into the knee-high weeds on the 18th hole and made a bogey, finishing his two rounds at 3-under 143. He won the last two years with scores of 21 and 22 under par. “If anyone gets to double figures, that would be excellent golf,” Appleby said. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
