He made the turn in 29 following four birdies and an eagle at the par-5 9th and was on course for a sub-60 round but while he stayed bogey-free he only made three more birdies on the back nine.

“I played unbelievably well. I did everything well today and my iron play was amazing. My distance control has been great.”

“You know, for playing a brand new ball, I’m doing pretty well controlling my distance. And I tell you what, I had a chance for a 59. I gave it all I could. I’m a little disappointed my putts didn’t fall, some of the good putts that I hit didn’t fall.

“But it’s still a good round.”
