Justin Rose lies three shots off the lead after the opening round of the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.

Three bogeys, including a six at the par-five ninth, left the Englishman one over at the turn.

But an impressive five birdies, and just one dropped shot, on the way back kept Rose in contention for the 1 million US dollars (£763,128) first prize.


Gary Woodland and Patrick Reed lead the way on six under with a third American, Chez Reavie, on four under.

Tiger Woods, who hosts the event, is tied for 11th on level par in the stellar 18-man field.
