Fuzzy Zoeller is off to a quick start at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge after carding birdies on his first two holes to shoot to the top of the 2011 Boeing Classic Leaderboard early in Friday's first round. At 2-under, Zoeller and Ronnie Black are tied for the lead. Both are started on hole No. 10, and are through just three holes of their first rounds. Tommy Armour III just added another birdie and is also at 2-under through three holes, though he started on the first tee.
Local product Fred Couples tees-off at 1 p.m., and will surely have a large following throughout the weekend. Couples is the attraction here in Seattle, with his hometown coming out to support him in the annual Champions Tour event. This week, he has to be considered the favorite, with a win at last week's Senior PGA serving as momentum heading into the Boeing Classic.
It's still early, but here's a look at the top of the leaderboard thus far.
Tommy Armour III -2
Fuzzy Zoeller -2
Ronnie Black -2
Keith Clearwater -1
Scott Simpson -1
Mark Calcavecchia -1
