2012 Deutsche Bank Championship: Five Golfers On Record Pace

After one round at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Friday, the competing golfers are on a record pace with the tournament leader already 9-under after one round. Seung-yul Noh of South Korea set the pace with nine birdies and nine pars, while four golfers are within two strokes of the lead.

Among those in the trailing group is Tiger Woods, who knocked in six consecutive birdies during the middle of his first round. Chris Kirk, who has two holes still to play in his first round, hit an eagle on 18 and racked up birdies on four of his seven holes on the front nine to take second at 8-under.

The tournament record is held by both Vijay Singh and Charley Hoffman, who finished the 2008 and 2010 tournaments, respectively, at 22-under par. At the current pace, five golfers are on pace to surpass that record after the first round of play.
