The weather isn’t the only thing that’s hot today at the CIMB Classic.  Players are taking full advantage of the golf course and the birdies are flying.

Jason Dufner recorded his first hole-in-one in a PGA TOUR-sanctioned event, holing out on the 201-yard 7th hole with a 5 iron.

Jeff Overton made eagle on No. 1, a 358-yard par 4. This is the 14th time he’s posted an eagle on a par-4, most recently at the Puerto Rico Open in March.

Johnson Wagner carded a career-best 29 (-6) on the front nine and added another birdie on No. 11 to get to 7 under on the day, through 11 holes. Wagner has never made more than nine birdies in one round and his career-low score is a 63. He’s got a great chance to set personal bests in both categories today, not to mention get himself into contention for the CIMB Classic title.

India’s Gaganjeet Bhullar is off to a great start as well – 5-under par through 10 holes, including five consecutive 3s (No. 6-10). Bhullar is making his first CIMB Classic start.
