UPDATE No. 8 (6:35 p.m. ET): Schniederjans birdies the last after a stunning approach from 213 yards to 9 feet and rolling in the putt. That’s an 8-under 63 and he’s tied for the lead with Howell!

UPDATE No. 7 (6 p.m. ET): Schniederjans has moved to 7 under through 17 with two late birdies. A birdie at the ninth ties him for the lead.

UPDATE No. 6 (4:46 p.m. ET): Ollie Schniederjans has suddenly got up there. Birdies at Nos. 2 and 3 move him to 5 under with six to play.

UPDATE No. 5 (4:25 p.m. ET): Among the afternoon wave, nobody is making an attempt at the lead yet. So far, 3 under is the best afternoon score. Defending champion Ryan Moore is 1 under through nine and tied for 47th.

UPDATE No. 4 (2:25 p.m. ET): Charles Howell III birdies No. 7 to close out an 8-under 63. That means a two-shot lead for now. Zach Johnson is among those at 6 under, as he opens in 65.

UPDATE No. 3 (12:49 p.m. ET): Charles Howell III is on fire. Five birdies in seven holes (at Nos. 14, 16, 17, 1 and 2) moves him to 7 under. That’s a two-shot lead. He’s now through 13 on his round (he started on No. 10 tee).

UPDATE No. 2 (11:16 a.m. ET): Ben Martin and Charles Howell III are both 5 under and co-leaders already. Martin goes out in 30 on the front nine while Howell is 5 under through after starting on No. 10 tee.

UPDATE No. 1 (9:58 a.m. ET): Zach Johnson takes the early lead after starting birdie-birdie-birdie.
