    Adam Scott followed a 2-under 68 in round one with a 3-under 67 on Friday to hold an early lead heading into the weekend at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship. The young Aussie, who wore a pair of all white DryJoys #53531 on Friday, came out of the gate strong with four birdies in a row on a difficult TPC Four Seasons course as he pursues his sixth career PGA Tour victory. Watch this interview to hear his thoughts on the second round, how he'll prepare for the final 36 holes and what sporting event he'll attend tonight to take his mind off of golf for a few hours.

    Our European Tour staff is in Shanghai, China this week for the BMW Asian Open. However, a lot of the talk early in the week was about the wild rain players endured during the final round last week in Beijing. A lot of players were singing the praises of their FootJoys...

    ReelFit Brown SaddleMarkus Brier commented that his pair of ReelFit (right, top) kept him completely dry and their lightness helped him through a very long Sunday. Louis Oosthuizen heard enough comments about the new DryJoys last weekend that he has ordered two pairs to try in the coming weeks. Graeme McDowell said that his ProDry Golf Socks came through a tough test in Beijing with flying colours. He said the benefits from the cushioning of a brand new pair were terrific in the poor weather conditions of last weekend. Looking forward to this week, here are a few other items that were discussed... Classics Dry whiteMartin Kaymer returned to action on the PGA European Tour wearing a sporty pair of all-white Classics Dry Premiere (right, bottom). After a discussion with him, we have decided he should try a narrower fit so he can benefit from greater support and stability... we will get something to him to try as quickly as possible. Michael Lorenzo-Vera asked about buying a pair of Exotics. His countrymen who have bought recently are so happy with theirs that he feels he can't miss out!!

    Our Tour reps are onsite at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship this week and sent some photos from inside the locker room on Tuesday. The locker rooms can be busy, especially early in the week, as players arrive and get settled for what they hope is a long (successful) week. We also have some nice photos from our Tour staff on the Nationwide Tour. The crew is in Richmond, Virginia this week for the Henrico County Open. Check out the slideshow to see what was going on at both events...

    World No. 1 Lorena Ochoa became the first U.S. LPGA Tour player in 45 years to win four LPGA tournaments in consecutive weeks on Sunday, firing a final round 3-under 69 to win the Ginn Open. Ochoa, who has now won five of her first six events to begin the season, finished with a 19-under 269 total to shatter the tournament's 72-hole scoring record by seven on her way to a three shot victory.Ochoa, who wore her trademark white custom Classics each of the four rounds, began the day with a one shot lead but was trailing after narrowly missing birdie putts on Nos. 5, 6, and 7. She finally grabbed the lead with a 10-foot birdie putt on No. 8, then followed with two more on the next two holes to grab the lead for good.She will look to tie the LPGA record of five consecutive victories in two weeks at the SemGroup Championship (May 1-4) in Oklahoma. THE STREAK
    • Fifth win in six events (includes the HSBC Champions, a non-LPGA Tour event)
    • Tenth win in her last 15 tournaments, dating to last year
    • She opened with an 11-stroke victory in Singapore (HSBC Women's Champions), defended her Safeway International title with a seven-stroke romp, won the season's first major by five shots (Kraft Nabisco Championship), and then led all the way last week in Mexico and won by 11 (Corona Championship).
    • All five of her victories have come with her leading to start the final round.
    • She leads the Tour in driving distance average at 277.5, Rolex Player of the Year points (183), greens in regulation (.810), birdies (124) rounds under par (22 of 23), top-10 finishes (6 of 6) and scoring average (67.8696).
