Bridgestone Invitational Golf Tournament

Morning edition: Sabbatini grabs real early lead

By Ron Published: August 4, 2011

The tournament is not an hour old yet, and Rory Sabbatinni has grabbed the real early lead at 4 under through four holes. He birdie each of the first four holes.

The weather is cool and damp, and should play into the early starters' hands.

My plan of attack for this weekend is for Jonas Fortune and myself to provide updates on the blog and on Twitter. We will have three to five posts per day that gives you some insight into what is occuring on the course and off.

You can follow me on Twitter at @RonLedgard. Jonas will be on the beat Friday through Sunday. He is on Twitter at @JonasFortune.

Marla Ridenour, Jason Lloyd and Tom Gaffney will be covering the event for the Beacon Journal and, and they will provide some thoughts and notes on the blog and Twitter, too. Marla is at @MarlaRidenour and Jason is at @JasonLloydABJ.

Have any questions, drop them here or on Twitter.

Check back to this post for more updates this morning.
