Rose missed the cut last week at the Northern Trust but bounced back with a bogey-free six-under 65 on the TPC Boston course, his lowest PGA Tour first round in 19-months.

"I was very aware that the course was playing trickier than usual so I arrived at the course well before my tee time and just hit some chips and putts, trying to get a feel for the golf course, feel for the greens," he said.

"I noticed that it was playing tricky out there, for sure. I looked at the pins last night, and I thought there was an opportunity to make some birdies.

"And I was able to go bogey-free today, which I think no one else managed to do. I guess just keeping the card clean made the birdies really count for something."

Scotland's Russell Knox and Mexico's Abraham Ancer are tied in second place.

"It was great," said Knox. "I think I was just plodding away and playing okay. And made kind of a mess of the 12th hole from the middle of the fairway."

"I made a great par on 14 and then holed my wedge shot on 15 before hitting a 6-iron on 16 to two feet."

"The round was just good in four holes. So, it was nice. I haven't had one of those bang-bang runs in a while."
