DeLaet Leads Sony Open

Graham DeLaet is in the lead at the Sony Open.

Who?

DeLaet was Rookie of the Year on the Canadian Tour in 2007, and Player of the Year there in 2009. In his native land, he won the 2008 Desjardins Montreal Open, the 2009 ATB Financial Classic and the 2009 Canadian Tour Players Cup. He’s also played on the Sunshine Tour, where he won the 2009 BMG Classic.

On the PGA Tour, he passed through Q-School and was a rookie in 2010. His best ever finish was a T-3 at the Shell Houston Open. In 2011, he suffered a back injury that sidelined him for all but three events.

This is a good way to come back. Here’s hoping he can keep up the pace. It’d be nice to have yet another player to talk about when discussing the depth of the current PGA Tour.

For us old guys, last week’s winner, Steve Stricker, is just three off the pace, in a T5.
