Pernice sets the pace


ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – Tom Pernice Jr. went off by himself at 10 a.m. in the third round’s first tee time, birdied the first and 14th holes, bogeyed the 17th and signed for a 71 just three hours and 16 minutes later.

“It was quite special,” Pernice said. “Talk about being able to go out and play a golf course that you love in a one-ball, it was a nice day.”

The Scots may have invented the game, but they aren’t the only ones who can play it quickly.
