Marc Leishman, from Australia, leads the BMW Championship shooting 62 in the opening round at Conway Farms.
Marc carded a first round -9 under par 62 to top the BMW Championship leaderboard by two shots.
A fault with the putter was picked up by his coach;
“I have a tendency to push the putter into the ground.”
“My coach picked it up and I started making putts again, so thanks, Denis.”
“When you play golf and all you’re thinking about his making birdies, it’s a lot easier than trying to not make bogeys.”
Jason Day, Charley Hoffman, and Jamie Lovemark all recorded first rounds of 64 to share second place at -7 under par.
Jason mentioned his friend and new caddie;
“A good step in the right direction, especially with having Luke on the bag.”
“Obviously, not having Colin on the bag is something different and I just didn’t know how I was going to play.”
“I think Luke did a fantastic job out there. We worked well together and hope we can keep that going.”
Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth are in the group at -5 under par after their opening efforts of -6 under 65.
Jordan stole some shots off the course today, and needed only 24 putts;
“I feel like I really stole a few shots out of this golf course.”
“Which is rare, to feel like you scored better than you played.”
Being at #6 in standings has taken pressure off of Rickie;
“For the most part it’s the least amount of pressure I’ve had the third week of the Playoffs because we’re obviously locked for the top-30 TOUR Championship next week.”
“But it would be nice to make sure we’re in that top five.”
Rory McIlroy falters in the defence of his FedExCup title, with a first round +1 over 72, he needs to finish in the top four here to progress any further.
