Day 1 of the Korn Ferry Tour’s Utah Championship is in the books and the leaderboard has some familiar names to the Bluegrass.
Sitting in a nice spot in third place and one shot off the lead, Josh Teater is the first of three Kentuckians among the low scorers. Teater’s 7-under has him trailing only Harry Hall and friend of the program Stephen Jaeger at 8-under.
One shot behind Teater you’ll find Kent Bulle, the Glasgow, Ky., native who is back on the tour after some time off. Bulle birdied four of the last seven holes to climb the leaderboard to end the day.
And just outside the top 10, former UK golfer Chip McDaniel is in a crowded 12th place with 5-under par, one shot behind Bulle, one behind Teater and one more behind the leaders.
It’s a nice start for Big Blue in a crowded field.
