Jerry Kelly is just two strokes behind leaders Jeff Sluman and Miguel Angel Jimenez heading into the second round of the Cologuard Classic, with the latter delivering one of the greatest shots of the day when he aced No. 7 his route to a 66.
After the round, Jimenez commented, “The ball never left the flag.” “By chance, it was a hole-in-one there, and I shot 4 under par.”
But the finest shot of the first day at Omni Tucson National came from Jerry Kelly’s driver, who had previously said how important this event is to him.
Kelly hit a right-to-left drive on the par-5 17th hole, leaving him on the cart road and facing a risky approach beneath a canopy of trees. The eight-time PGA Tour Champions winner drew a driver from his bag and swung away, making “electric” contact and edging out a birdie on the hole.

Tom Lehman, Woody Austin, and Rod Pampling, all of whom shot a 67 on Friday, were among those near the top of the leaderboard after the first day.
