Echavarria stated, “Yeah it was a dream begin.” “I found something yesterday on the range, and even though I was nervous on some holes today, I kept my game plan and the feeling of what I saw on the range in mind. It worked really well. Happy with my game, happy with the shots that I hit under pressure. We can do it tomorrow.

Young, a Tour rookie, shot a 1-under-71 on moving day, which was his worst round by four shots. He’ll still be looking for his first PGA Tour win in the final pairing.
