This week: Farmers Insurance Open, Thursday through Sunday, Torrey Pines North and South Courses, La Jolla, Calif.
Gonzales’ first-round score: 2-over-par 74 on North Course.
Stanley’s first-round score: 3-over 75 on South Course.
Kelly’s first-round score: 5-over 77 on South Course.
Position: Gonzales is tied for 124th, Stanley is tied for 138th and Kelly is tied for 153rd – all trailing co-leaders K.J. Choi and Brandt Snedeker (65).
Recap: After nearly leading wire-to-wire last year, Stanley opened on the first hole of the South Course and air-mailed his approach from 140 yards over the green, leading to a double bogey. After that, he never settled in any groove (four bogeys, three birdies). … Gonzales birded his first hole, a par 5, but strung together three consecutive bogeys at the seventh, eighth and ninth holes to fall over-par – for good. … Kelly is tied for last place after his opening 77 (four bogeys, one double bogey, one birdie). He did nearly ace the scenic downhill par-3 third hole, sticking a 9-iron to within 21/2 feet from the cup.
