History was made at 8:59 a.m. CT, when Parker and Pierceson Coody set out for Round 1 of the Children’s Hospital Houston Open to become the first twins to be grouped together in a PGA Tour event.

The grouping — which also included Jacob Bridgeman — was predictably relaxed considering the twins play many of their practice rounds together and are sharing a house this week in Houston with their dogs.

“I think our dogs are closer friends than we are. It makes everyone in the house really happy,” Pierceson Coody said. “My fiancée and his girlfriend are great friends now, we’ve just been hanging out having a good time.”

The biggest challenge of the day fell on the walking scorers and standard bearer, who struggled at times to distinguish between the two.
