Thursday was also a good day for Joe Affrunti and Scott Langley. Langley fired an opening round (-3) 68 after missing the cut in his only previous John Deere Classic appearance. Affrunti (-2) is in good position after opening with a 69.
It was a rough first round for Luke Guthrie and D.A. Points. Points shot a +1 (72), and Guthrie fell victim to a double-bogey and triple-bogey on his way to a +5.
