Steve Stricker shot a solid two-under (-par) round of 68, in defense of his Crowne Plaza Invitational Title, playing at Colonial, in Fort Worth, Texas. Stricker is currently in 33rd place.

Stricker is my A-player in Yahoo Fantasy Golf this week, where I am in the 80th percentile and at 2876 points after a couple of decent weeks.

K.J. Choi played one shot lower than Stricker for a 67. He is my B-player this week, currently in 14th place.

Bo Van Pelt is also in with a very nice 66 and minus four for Thursdays round. Bo Van Pelt is my other B-fantasy player this week.

He was on the bench, but was quickly activated in place of Hunter Mahan who is plus four.

Fredrik Jacobson was my starter this week, and in Round One he shot a two-under (-par) 68 for some points also. I have to hope Van Pelt can get up to the top and score some first place points during the next three rounds.

Ben Crane, my C-player had an opening round of 68 also, and will be active in Round Two.

His back-up, Angel Cabrera, did shoot 67 , but I do not feel the need to make a switch from Crane as he has been money the last few weeks.

Your leader, Jason Bohn, shot a fine round of 63, and was matched by Jeff Overton, again with an opening round 63.

The Bohn Supremacy will continue tommorrow on the course—and hopefully written about in another article—followed by the Bohn Ultimatum coming to your television screen this weekend.

This will be the first in a long line of Jason Bohn events as he tries to remember why he plays golf at such a fine level. He's dangerous. Don't cross Jason Bohn, as Jeff Overton is likely to find out tomorrow.

Other players in this Bohn Identity event include Brian Davis at six under. Bill Haas, Bryce Molder, Nathan Green, John Mallinger, and Blake Adams all shot five under.

Ricky Barnes and John Daly are at minus four. Yes, John Daly! That's sure cool, as I like Daly and want him to get back to an exemption on the PGA Tour.

What a Sunday we could have with John Daly in the mix. Pop a cold one, and watch a good old boy win a golf tournament. Just don't mess with Bohn.

Bohn is among us and we don 't know what he will do next.  Get rid of Bohn and everything comes together. Good luck, and I hope he does not remember for all our sake.
