There is a lull in the golf world. In between majors, the PGA Tour is basically an afterthought to sports fans every where - besides the golf enthusiasts.

Needless to say, many aren't even aware the Greenbrier Classic is being played as I type this. Sometimes, as a golf fan, one must dig deeper to find a reason to tune into tournaments between majors that so often fall into the abyss.

However, each week, there are always a few story lines worth checking out, and the Greenbrier is no exception.

Current co-leader Erik Compton is a double heart transplant recipient who needed a sponsors exemption to even make the trip to West Virginia. But here he is, overcoming a slow start and rattling off a slew of birdies in the first round to put himself well in contention to make the cut.

Think about how many times you've felt like you may have a heart attack on the golf course after you hit, find your ball behind a tree, or simply can't find the thing at all. My guess is your still recounting all the times you felt like that - because it happens far too often.

Double heart transplant surgery... sure makes shanking a ball into the woods seem trivial.

After seeing the results from Round 1, here are my predictions for who will be in the Top 5 come Sunday:

1. Jim Furyk - He's four shots back, but I think he's due.
2. Boo Weekley - Playing solid golf, will continue to be in contention throughout the year.
3. Erik Compton - Would love to see him win, but giving him a karma play here by putting him at 3. Not sure he can hold off, though.
4. Davis Love III - He's had a good year up to this point... quietly.
5. John Daly - It's gotta be the pants...

Tweeting the game

One this is certain, no matter your feelings on Twitter, golf writers and players provide some of the best content on the site, hands down. If you're on Twitter and you're not following these individuals, you have no reason to be on Twitter. Here's who you need to follow and why:

@JasonSobel - Insightful updates about whatever tournaments he's covering. As the Senior Golf Writer for ESPN he has great access to the players. Provides comedic relief as well.

@stewartcink - Absolutely hilarious. Enough said - just check him out.

@PGA_JohnDaly - Well, it's John Daly, do you need any other reason?
