Bryce shot a first round -6 under par 64 to take the lead in the  Dean & Deluca Invitational, at Colonial Country Club, even though he was worried about the darkening skies, following a delay of 75 minutes caused by rain and lightning in the area ;

“It was almost like they were about to blow the horn for darkness.”

“It wasn’t dark to where you can’t see the ball flight, but you’re kind of reading putts looking a little funny at it.”

“It was dark. It was weird. It was almost like late, late, late in the day.”

“I hit a lot of greens early, 20, 30 feet, and just kind of rolled it up close.”

 “And then all of a sudden hit a couple close when I made the turn, Nos. 1 and 2, got some close birdies.”

“Maybe the delay just kind of helped me wake up.”

“Actually, I went back out on the range and just kind of one little tinker here or there and found a little groove for the rest of the 12 holes.”

Patrick Reed, Anirban Lahiri and Webb Simpson all carded first rounds of -5 under par 65.

Ryan PalmerJason Dufner, Martin Piller and Kyle Reifers are all in a tie for fifth spot following their opening rounds of -4 under par 66.

Ryan is comfortable out on the Colonial course;

“It’s a golf course I can step on to each tee and don’t even need my yardage book.”

“To shoot 4-under out here on a Thursday, you’re not hurting.”

Jordan Spieth, the world’s No. 2-ranked player is in a large group of players at -3 under par, he was not happy with the wind today;

“It was so tough to gauge the wind correctly and get the ball close to the hole.”

“On a day like this, you’re just really looking to hit greens in regulation, be as stress-free as possible, and it felt like we were out there.”
