Coastal Carolina alum Dustin Johnson on his team's College World Series championship today:

Jordan Spieth looked flummoxed and frustrated by his swing throughout the entire WGC-Bridgestone Invitational opening round. But -- this just in -- he can putt a little bit. Despite hitting only seven greens in regulation, Spieth needed just 21 total putts to post a 2-under 68, just four shots off the early lead.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

With one hole left, Jordan Spieth has found 6-of-13 fairways and 6-of-17 greens in regulation -- and is currently 1-under for the day.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Not sure which stat is more 😳: That Dustin Johnson is averaging 366 yards off the tee today or that he only ranks second in the field.
