 Boo Weekley's new shafts produce an eight-under 64 at Zurich Classic

AVONDALE, Louisiana  -- A quick fix in Boo Weekley's bag paid huge dividends today in the first round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Louisiana.

Using a new set of shafts from True Temper, Weekley, pictured when he won in 2013, fired an 8-under 64 with one eagle, seven birdies and a lone bogey over the 7,425-yard Pete Dye lay-out.
 It marked his best opening-round score in more than two years, tying a 6-under 64 at The McGladrey Classic in October 2012.

He hit 11 of 14 fairways and 14 of 18 greens greens in regulation and needed 26 putts.
"I've been struggling with my irons the past month or so and finally I got some shafts that work,'' Weekley said. "I used them in Wednesday's pro-am and came away feeling really good. Finally, I can control the distance and the trajectory and the numbers.
"And it helps when you're really putting well. When you put the two together, you can shoot pretty good. Plus, I'm back on Bermuda grass, I'm close to home (Milton, Florida) and I love the heat. What's not to like?"
Weekley, who missed three consecutive cuts at the Valspar Championship, Arnold Palmer Invitational  and the Valero Texas Open before finishing T75 at last week's RBC Heritage, cautioned that one round does not make a tournament.
"You can't win the tournament today,'' he said. "There's a lot of golf left. We're all out here hitting it the same. The difference is who's hitting it the closest.
"But I saw the good today. If you don't hit it good tomorrow, you don't hit it good. That's why they call it a four-letter game -- GOLF!"
