At the PGA stop in Reno, Troy Kelly’s off to a good start. He shot a 2-under 70 at the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open and is currently tied for ninth. There’s still a lot of players on the course, and he’s likely to drop in the standings. Still, it was a solid round. In relation to par, the 2-under round equals his third best score this year. His best rounds were a 4-under 66 in the Sony Open in Hawaii and a 3-under 69 at SilverRock Golf Club during the third round of the Bob Hope Classic. Those were the first two tournaments of the year. This is his 15th tournament and Kelly is looking to make his third cut.
