09:45 AM ET 04.19 | England's Brian Davis fired a six-under par opening round at The RBC Heritage on Thursday afternoon. Davis' 65 on the par 71 Harbor Town Golf Links at Hilton Head Island was good for a one shot lead over a threesome that includes Tampa Bay Champion winner, Kevin Streelman, Johnson Wagner and Charley Hoffman. This is the only the third time in his career that Davis has had the lead after the first round of a PGA event. His lead would have been two, but Davis called a penalty on himself at the 12th hole when he hit a strand of grass while in the hazard next to the green. Davis called the official over, explained what he had done, and confirmed the mistake. This is the same type of penalty Carl Pettersson incurred at the PGA Championship last August while playing the first hole in the final round at Kiahwah Island. The PGA received over 200 emails from viewers who saw the infraction.

I've heard of this cat, but it's because I read the "Who's Who of Who the Hell Are They."
