Hack's early attack sets pace at Bayview Place Cardtronics Open
Sure, the rain was falling, but at least the 40 50 km/h winds hadn't set in yet.
Jhared Hack, Derek Barron and Ryan Williams all took advantage of that in the first round of the Mackenzie Tour PGA Tour Canada's Bayview Place Cardtronics Open presented by the Times Colonist, using early Thursday tee times to post low rounds of the day.
Hack, of Sanford, Florida, tied the course record at Uplands Golf Club with a 9 under 61 to assume sole possession atop the leaderboard.
"Just stay patient. One shot at a time. "One shot at a time, eliminate silly mistakes and be patient.
"When you shoot a round like this, pandora jewelry center it just happens. You don't go out and say: 'Hey, I'm going to shoot 61 today.' Just stay patient," added Hack of his impressive round in wet conditions, but minus the heavy winds that hit later in the day.
"It was really good golfing. I didn't strike it that well, but I missed it in areas where I had good leaves and good up and downs. I putted really nicely today and when you shoot a round like this you have to roll it well," he said. "I made all my five to 15 foot putts. These greens are so good, if you see the line and match the speed it's going to go in."
Most of his putts did as he started on the back nine and recorded birdies on his second, third, fourth and fifth holes. There were five more birdies on the front (his back) nine for Hack, 27, who has gordon's jewelers 54 pro wins under his belt on various Florida mini tours.

"It's going to be a blast. I've been going over the holes at night on my computer, trying to get as much information as I can. I'm just going to go for it. I have nothing to lose," he added. "I'm certainly working on things for next week just to give me more confidence, but man, I'm going to have fun."
He, like Hack, made a load of putts on Thursday.
"I felt I didn't hit it good at all," said Barron. "I just made, pretty much, everything inside of 15 feet. It was just a fun day on the greens."
Williams has one PGA Tour Canada win to his credit, in 2014 at the Freedom 55 Financial Championship in London, Ont. His best finish in Victoria is 15th in 2015.
