D.J. Trahan tallied 10 points in today's opening round of the Barracuda Championship, finishing four off the clubhouse lead.
At last check, Trahan led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 6.900, but his strokes gained: putting registered -3.379 (ranking 89th). While inconsequential to what matters most, it offers a peek at the kind of experience the 34-year-old endured today. He traded six birdies with two bogeys, but one of his birdies dropped from 34 yards out from the fairway at the par-5 second hole. At 235th in the FedExCup standings, Trahan has nothing to lose tomorrow and on the weekend, but he's not expected to contend, either. He's gone 20 consecutive starts on the PGA TOUR without a top 25.

The two-time winner has totaled a healthy 26 greens in regulation, but as we're seeing early in this tournament, it's a war of attrition in the wind.

With further starts on the PGA TOUR expected to be few and far between, he must take advantage of this. He's made five of eight cuts in this event, sharing 56th last season.
