The 1st Round t the L. A. Open is in the books! Leaping out on the top of the Leader Board is a trio of golfers at -5. I set Riviera up to play tough in Round 1, although there was very little wind.
Course conditions at Riveria for 1st Round Play were:
Course – Very Hard
Greens – Fast
Rough – PGA
Wind – Calm
Direction – Southwest
Pin – Red
PLUS Dynamic Weather, Variable Wind Direction & Speed are all ON.
The Leaders are Robert Karlsson, Richard Lee, & Spencer Levin. Levin & Bubba Watson had gotten to -6 in their rounds but Spencer fell back 1 stroke by bogeying the 17th hole while Bubba fell apart losing 4 strokes on the last 3 holes at Olympic Club falling to -2.

Here are some of the results in various categories:
Kool & The Gang … There’s a party goin’ on right here
Robert Karlsson, Richard Lee, & Spencer Levin Leading & Partying Down at -5.
Steve Miller Band – Big Ol’ Jet Airliner … Don’t carry me too far away
Paul Casey, Matt Every, Ted Potter, Jr., Thomas Bjorn, & Adam Scott just 1 shot back at -4 don’t even want to board the plane and get carried too far away!
Destiny’s Child – Say my name … Say my name … You’ acting kind of shady
Dustin Johnson & Bill Haas at +6, Jeff Maggert +5, Hunter Mahan +4, Ernie Els and Keegan Bradley at +3 are definitely acting “kinda shady” and are far from being a Destiny’s Child as they may not even make the cut!
3 Doors Down – But It’s Not My Time
Rickie Fowler +3, Martin Kaymer, Steve Stricker, and Jason Day +2 … It’s just not their time to “shine!”
Manually Controlled Highlights & Lowlights
Controlled 6 golfers – Highlight was Fred Couples at –2. Lowlight was Victor Dubuisson at +3.
