A Hot Start for Davis
Chatfield got off to a really special start on the opening nine holes.
Starting on one, he birdied the second hole, dropped another birdie on the fifth hole and then ripped off three straight birdies on holes seven, eight and nine to turn at 31.
On the back side, Chatfield bogeyed the 11th hole, but then ripped off three birdies on holes 12, 13, and 15.
However, he closed the day with back-to-back bogeys to shoot 67.
