Harold Varner III shot an eight-under 62 to share the first-round lead with Tom Hoge and Roger Sloan at the Wyndham Championship.


The American’s eight-birdie, no-bogey round at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina, matched his career best on the PGA Tour.

Canada’s Sloan birdied on the 16th and 17th holes and could have moved into an outright lead but failed to sink a 15-foot birdie on the final hole.



The trio were two shots ahead of Harris English while Wesley Bryan led a large chasing group in fifth which included former Masters champion Patrick Reed with a five-under 65.

England’s Tom Lewis was five shots back as part of group tied for 25th which included countryman Paul Casey, who tied for second at last week’s US PGA Championship.


Casey started strongly and picked up three shots before the turn and another on the 10th, but had bogeys on the 11th and 12th.

He later had birdies on the 16th and 17th before finishing play with a bogey on the 494-yard 18th.


There were 33 players still on the course when bad weather suspended play.
