“Front nine, obviously, when you shoot 6-under-par first nine, a lot things went well. Toms stated that while I made some good putts, I also hit many nice shots, kept it in play, and got quite hot in the beginning. “I thought it might have been one of those days when I could go really low.”

Toms won the 2021 Ascension Charity Classic, St. Louis in a playoff.

“You can’t get ahead of yourself, certainly.” Toms stated that he never thought about winning a lot back when I won a fair amount on [PGA] Tour. He just went out and played golf, and it just happened.” “Tomorrow, I will have to be aggressive because there are a lot more guys out there. You saw some great scores today. It’s going to be a nice day again so I will have to be hot on another day.
