Date:Sep 12–15, 2019
Course:The Old White TPC
It’s a battle at the top of the first PGA Tour tournament of the 2019-20 season. Joaquin Niemann, Scottie Scheffler, and Robby Shelton are all tied at 13 under, each looking for their first Tour victory.
Niemann is the only one of the three who has completed a full season on the PGA Tour, earning his Tour card through sponsor’s exemption starts in 2018. Shelton and Scheffler each recently graduated from the Korn Ferry Tour and are playing for greater Tour priority ranking with a victory this weekend. A win during this early stretch of the season earns full status for the rest of this season (another 40-plus events) and the ensuing two seasons to follow.
Three shots back is Kevin Chappell, who shot a 59 Friday that featured nine-straight birdies, tying a PGA Tour record. Chappell is playing his first Tour event since microdisectomy surgery last fall.
