Tour debutant Sepp shot a bogey free -9 under par 63 to lead the Safeway Open by one shot after day 1 in California.

Rookie Chase Wright, USA holds second place at -8 under following his opening bogey free round of 64;

“Good first day at the office.” 

Claiming third place at -7 under is Phil Mickelson, bouncing back after a poor Ryder Cup performance, today he was bogey free in his first round of 65, having six birdies in a row on the way;

“I certainly didn’t expect this, I expected to be going home after tomorrow, but now I don’t.”

“Now I think I’ll have maybe a good day tomorrow. Who knows?”

“I’m not playing well, I’m not at my best, today, I had a couple of things click and I got in a nice little rhythm, but the bottom line is I’m not playing well, I’m tired and so forth.”

“So I’m trying to save every ounce of energy I have for the course and maybe it will click.”
