IRVING, Texas – Boo Weekley is attempting to pull off an unlikely Texas Two-Step: Back-to-back wins in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in a 52-week span.
Last year’s Crowne Plaza Invitational champion opened with a 3-under 67 at the Byron Nelson Championship that included six birdies.
“I've been working on some putting stuff and I'm hitting the ball solid, hitting the ball good, driving it well and hitting a lot of good iron shots,” Weekley explained. “Just been struggling the last couple of months with my putting so decided to change 'em out a little more this week, get aggressive in the hitting area and my longer putts, I had no control over my distance and that's where the 3 putts came in at.
“Then when I hit it close I was pretty good with them. It was a good round today for me.”
