“I feel good about what I’m doing, and the game feels good,” Mahan said.
Mahan was brilliant in Sunday’s start at Riviera, with birdies at four the first six holes. When he birdied the 11th, he was tied for the lead. He fell out of contention with bogeys at three of the last four holes and tied for eighth.
“It’s really six individual tournaments against world class competition,” Mahan said. “You have to step on the first tee on the first day and play well.”
