PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – World No. 1 Jason Day opened first-round play of The Players Championship by tying the course record with a 9-under-63. That’s good enough for a two-stroke lead over Cameron Tringale, Shane Lowry, Justin Rose, Bill Haas and Brendan Steele.
Day putted for birdie on every hole, making half of them. His longest par putt was 30 inches.
Former World No. 1 Jordan Spieth (SPEETH) opened with a 73 while playing with Day.
