Alabama’s Robby Shelton rides hot putter to first-round lead at GolfBC Championship

Golf professionals are forever tinkering with some part of their game and Robby Shelton seems to be on to something. Shelton was draining birdie putts all day during Thursday’s first round of the GolfBC Championship at Gallagher’s Canyon Golf & Country Club. The 21-year-old from Mobile, Ala., made nine of them en route to an eight-under 63 that gave him a one-shot lead in the $175,000 Mackenzie Tour-PGA Tour Canada event.

Grades will not be A’s and B’s, but birdies and bogeys. Chris Trunzer is the teacher, Matt Hopley the student and both are playing in this week’s GolfBC Championship.
