It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be at the start of the week."Lyle hit eight greens on the back nine but missed an 8-footer for birdie on No. 16 and a 6-foot birdie try on 18.'I'm just putting it down to rust" Lyle said. 'It's just one of those things when you haven't played in a long time you start seeing things on the greens that aren't there or you don't see things that are there."Lyle also is set to play Web.com Tour events Aug. 7-10 in Springfield Missouri and Aug. 14-17 in Knoxville Tennessee.
