A city known for its star power has a PGA Tour event filled with fairy tales off Sunset Boulevard. Start with William McGirt, who ran off eight birdies in 13 holes at Riviera on his way to a 6-under 65 on Saturday to build a two-shot lead in the Northern Trust Open. Going into his fourth full season, McGirt has never won on the PGA Tour. His last victory was on the eGolf Tour in the Carolinas, where the $16,000 winner’s check paid off his credit cards. Asked to name the mini-tours he played, McGirt said he would run out of fingers and toes counting them.
PGA Tour rookie William McGirt needs to have another outstanding performance at The Deutsche Bank Championship to move on to the BMW Championship.
