Aussies in contention at 2013 Tampa Bay Championship

Geoff Ogilvy Featured AO 12

A RESURGENT Geoff Ogilvy leads a number of Aussies still well in contention after the first round of the 2013 Tampa Bay Championship in Palm Harbour, Florida.

Ogilvy had an eagle and three birdies offset by three bogeys in his 2-under 69.

Ogilvy, still fighting to confirm a US Masters spot, is just four strokes behind “unknown” tornament leader Shawn Stefani, a US PGA TOUR rookie.

The 32 year old American has a two shot lead over the field after a breezy first day on a very tough Innisbrook Resort – Copperhead course.

Also well in touch are Aussies Adam Scott, Jason Day and Marc Leishman on 1-under, while John Senden and Greg Chalmers are on even par 71.
