Englishman Tom Lewis is the surprise joint leader after the first round of the Honda Classic following a bogey-free 66 in Florida.


In his first appearance at the PGA event, the 29-year-old was able to start strongly in cold conditions and did not look back after an eagle at the third.

Lewis is joined in a share for the lead by American Harris English, who hit a birdie at the 18th to also finish four under par.


One shot back is Lee Westwood in a tie for third after carding 67, the same score as four Americans including two-time major winner Zach Johnson.

Fellow Englishmen Tommy Fleetwood, Luke Donald and Ian Poulter are four shots off the lead after they had to settle for level-par 70s.


Four-time major winner Brooks Koepka, the only member of the world’s top 10 involved at Palm Beach, struggled to a four-over-par 74 but fellow Americans Rickie Fowler (76) and Jim Furyk (78) fared even worst.
