Strong finish to first round helps steady Haig Point's Bova at RBC Heritage

Hilton Head Island resident Matt Bova is playing in his first PGA Tour event this week, as the Haig Point Club assistant professional earned an exemption into the field by winning the Carolinas PGA's 18-hole qualifier at Berkeley Hall last month. In his opening round Thursday morning, the 26-year-old shot a 7-over 78, but rallied at the end with birdies on three of his final five holes. Bova shares his experiences this week in a daily diary, as told to reporter Chris Cox.
