Rookie Luke Guthrie making a splash again on Web.com Tour

Newly minted pro Luke Guthrie has come out swinging since joining the paid ranks out of the University of Illinois.

Guthrie again got off to a hot start, taking the lead at the Web.com Tour's Cox Classic on Thursday. Guthrie shot 9-under 62 at Champions Run in Omaha, Neb., to take a one-shot lead over Jim Herman.

The rookie made just four pars on the day while carding a dozen birdies. He dropped three shots on the day, which kept him from the magical 59. He made a double-bogey 6 on the first, his 10th hole of the day, and a bogey at No. 14.

In his last Web.com Tour start, Guthrie lost to Ben Kohles in a playoff for the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational. The paycheck, however, sent him to 33rd on the money list. The top 25 earn PGA Tour cards for next season. A win this week would all but guarantee finishing above that water mark at season's end.
