Russell Henley off to hot start in 2013

It's been overlooked because of the Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy Nike-mania in Abu Dhabi, but Russell Henley is absolutely killing it right now.

Golf Channel posted an incredible graphic about the number of rounds Henley has shot of 64 or below thus far this season.

Take a look:



Rounds of 64 or better

2013 Russell Henley 4
2012 Robert Garrigus 5

That's right, Henley is already 80 percent of the way to matching 2012's top mark set by Robert Garrigus in this random (but impressive) statistic.

Sure, the Sony Open was a par-70 and this week's Humana Challenge annually doubles as one of the easiest tracks on tour, but the kid is still on fire and I wouldn't be surprised if he matches last year's mark later on this weekend.
