Russell Henley opened with a bogey-free 8-under 62 featuring and eagle at the par-5 15th to take a one-stroke lead at the Wyndham Championship.

"You know, the first little bit of the front nine it was raining and felt like, man, this could be a tough day, especially if it picks up a little bit. So just kind of hoping it would slow down a little bit. And it did on the back nine, so we were fortunate. Just hit a lot of fairways and felt like from there I could attack the golf course.

The American has had eight scores of 63 or better in the last three seasons and is tied for the most of any player on the PGA Tour in that time alongside Patrick Cantlay, Jon Rahm and Xander Schauffele.

This season marks his 11th straight season of finishing inside the top 100 in the FedExCup standings, he is currently No. 34.

Canada's Adam Svensson closed with a bogey-free 63 for a share of second place at 7-under.

Svensson is one of four Canadians to win on Tour this season, the most in a single season on record (since 1983); Stan Leonard (1957) is the only Canadian to win the Wyndham Championship.

Also tied in second place is South Korean Byeong Hun An ahead of American Andrew Novak in fourth at 6-under.

J.T. Poston of the United States, runner-up at last week's 3M Open, is tied in fifth place at 5-under alongside Australian Adam Scott.


FedExCup Playoffs

The Wyndham Championship is the final event of the FedExCup Regular Season, with the top 70 in the FedExCup standings qualifying for next week’s FedEx St. Jude Championship (the first Playoffs event).

Players currently projected to move into the top 70 in the FedExCup standings: Adam Scott (No. 81/projected No. 68); Scott is one of two players who have qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs in each season since the inception of the FedExCup in 2007; the other: Matt Kuchar (T51/-1; projected No. 61 in the FedExCup).
