The new food truck area just off of the 10th fairway was packed at lunch time, and the cool zones were a great spot for fans to take a break in the shade from the heat.> > Sot > Chuck Bonds - Fan > It's getting kind of steamy little bit here today. Having areas and venues like this where you got the shade got holes and see how you can find some air- conditioning instead of the shopping areas certainly has meant a lot more tolerable > > CP Back On cam > As always, the PGA Tour is on the cutting edge of technology.Ponte Vedra resident and Tour member Billy Horschel has started using Google Glass as a way to help his game.> > Vo > Horschel says that Google Glass and the golf apps they have can help analyze players swings, act as a GPS device when you are playing a round of golf, and even allow amateur golfers record their own shots and watch them later.> > Sot > Billy Horschel - PGA Tour Member > You're not going to need all these other things are carrying around just clubs, balls, and Glass.
