FORT WORTH, Texas —
On the easy par-5, 548-yard first hole, the long-hitting Weekley was on the green in two and his 22-foot eagle chance stopped less than a half-foot from the cup. He chipped in for another birdie from behind the third green, but sliced his tee shot out of bounds at No. 5 toward the Trinity River for a bogey.
Weekley dropped another shot at the 437-yard seventh hole when he missed the green with his approach, but his go-ahead birdie run started on the next hole — with a 6-iron inside 4 feet at the 200-yard eighth hole.
