Storm stories from Wyndham

Saturday, August 22, 2009

GREENSBORO, N.C. – How bad is the second storm of the day here at the Wyndham Championship? Well, you may have seen the lights go off during David Feherty’s interview with Freddie Couples. But, for the record, the television in the media center also went down for a minute or so.

Stories of the day? So far, rain – and Riley. As in your leader Chris Riley, who sent his 9-iron from 164 yards on the par-4 first hole into the hole for eagle.

“Yeah, that was pretty good speed,” he joked.

Riley, who started the day for tied for the lead with Jeff Maggert and Ryan Moore, now has a one-shot lead over Sergio Garcia, through four and five holes, respectively. Couples is currently third, another shot back.

So Riley is your leader in the clubhouse, for now, as the lightning bolts continue to light up the afternoon sky.

(Chances he’ll leave the clubhouse any time soon? Eh...)
