This week: Honda Classic. Thursday through Sunday, PGA National Champion Course, Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Stanley’s and Kelly’s first-round score: Even-par 70.

Position: Both locals are tied for 61st, six strokes behind leader Camilo Villegas (64).

Recap: Mistakes can be mitigated when you go 3-under on two par-5 holes like Stanley did. He started off with a pair of early bogeys, but busted a 260-yard approach at No. 18 that landed 10 feet from the hole. He made the putt – then birdied the other par 5 at No. 3. … Kelly was 2-under after his birdie at No. 13 (wedge approach to 8 feet), but he hit his drive on the next hole far right, and into a lake. He took a penalty shot, and ended up making double bogey.

Tee times Friday: Kelly at 5:05 a.m. PST off the 10th tee, and Stanley at 9:15 a.m. PST off the first tee.
