2. For the second year in the tournament, Hopkinton High graduate Keegan Bradley will be playing in front of a hometown crowd. He played in high school at TPC-Boston. "I've spoken to a bunch of players, and you really just need to treat it like any other week.  These people will be excited either way, whether you play very well or poorly.  I think it's just a matter of relaxing and just pretending like I'm playing on the West Coast or some other place and feeling comfortable out there," Bradley said afer Tuesday's Pro-Am.

3. Tiger Woods was excited about the condition he found the TPC-Boston in this year. Woods missed the FedEx Cup last year and didn't play in Deutsche Bank, which benefits his foundation. "The golf course is in absolute perfect shape.  I mean, it's awesome right now," he said.  "Sure, it'll dry out a little bit come the rest of the week and get a little bit faster and more difficult."

4. Today will be National College Colors Day. The gate hours will be 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

5. The first round will be shown on the Golf Channel from 3-6 p.m.
