Moreover, there are around 15 players who are just three or fewer strokes behind the lead, which shows the competitiveness in the leaderboard after day one. The course seems to be playing on the easier side, with plenty of birdie opportunities.

In golf, fans are always near to a player, which can sometimes be a headache or can create a disturbance for the players. However, yesterday at the BMW Championship’s first round, there was an incident with a patron, which seems to have charged Kevin Kisner a bit.

Kevin Kisner had a tough start as he was two-over thru the front nine. But on the eleventh hole, an incident took place, which probably charged up Kevin. During the second shot on the eleventh hole, a drunk patron yelled. “Why lay up? Why not go for it?,” to which Kisner replied, “Why not go f**k yourself?”

Moreover, it is interesting to note that he went onto make a birdie on that hole to get back to +1. Furthermore, he scored two more birdies on the next three holes to go one-under for the day. This incident seems to have charged Kisner as he looked in sync with his game till the 17th hole.

On the 17th, Kevin sadly dropped a shot and eventually went onto finish his day at even par. After round one, he is currently T56, but since this is a no-cut event, he will have a chance to play all four rounds. But if he wants to get into the top 30 for the Tour Championship, he needs a strong finish as he currently sits on the edge at the 31st spot in the FedExCup rankings.
