“Any time you can have those rounds where you really get it going low and mistake-free, bogey-free is a bonus. It’s why you work at it and why you practice the way we do.”

The American, who finished second in last week’s Travelers Championship, is the first player on record to open consecutive TOUR events with 62 or better. Only four players on record have multiple opening rounds of 62 or better in a season.

“I worked really hard on the golf swing. I got to give my coach, John McNeeley a lot of credit. He and I have worked on the golf swing a little bit from a technical standpoint in the last year.

“I would say for the last few months it’s been in a good spot. Just hadn’t quite seen the results. Then Hilton Head I had a good week, Wells Fargo, good week, last week playing well.

“So I think it’s starting to kind of come together and see the results and see the shots and kind of building that confidence back into my ball striking.”
