“I’ve honestly been swinging pretty poorly the past couple weeks,” Gribble said on PGATour.com. “But it feels a lot better. I worked with my teacher Randy Smith on Tuesday. We had a great session and regardless of what happened today, I mean obviously I played great, but the process and kind of what I was wanting to do with the swing was definitely working in the right direction.”
Gribble finished the first round with a 6-under, 64 and tied for the lead with Wesley Bryan.
“We’ve got a long way to go in the event,” Gribble continued. “But it was a great start.”
This is the fourth time in Honda Classic history that a player has hit all 18 greens in regulation, including by Fred Couples when he won the event in 1993 when it was played at Weston Hills Golf and Country Club.
Since moving to PGA Natl, only one player has ever hit all 18 GIR… @CodyGribble
