Arjun Atwal made the turn at 1 over, which is not bad considering he seemed disappointed over having misssed decent birdie chances of six or seven feet on both the par-5 second and par-4 third.

He made two bogeys, and believed he had made a third on No. 6. As soon as he took his par putt, he started walking, signaling that he was sure he had missed. But the ball went in.

Atwal, the Clarke High and Nassau Community College grad, saved pars with five-footers on Nos. 7 and 9. And he made birdie from the pine straw on the left on the par-5 eighth.
