UPDATE NO. 10 (10:15 p.m. ET): The round is over. Justin Thomas fired a 2-under 71 and Jordan Spieth a 2-over 75. Marc Leishman leads by one after a 6-under 67. Here’s your full recap of Day 1:

UPDATE NO. 9 (9:43 p.m. ET): How about a birdie-birdie-par-par-EAGLE finish? Rickie Fowler does just that to rocket to 4-under 69.

He goes from middle of the pack to a tie for fourth in the clubhouse. Fowler ended in style, too, by draining a 22-footer.

UPDATE NO. 8 (9:37 p.m. ET): Jordan Spieth is struggling but still fighting. He’s 2 over through 16. Justin Thomas has moved to 1 under.

Marc Leishman leads by one at 6 under as he plays the 18th. Brian Harman and Jhonattan Vegas are tied for second after posting 5-under 68s.

UPDATE NO. 7 (9:10 p.m. ET): Brian Harman takes the clubhouse lead with a 5-under 68. But he’s tied for the lead overall as Marc Leishman is 5 under through 15. Here’s the full top 5 leaderboard.

UPDATE NO. 6 (8:15 p.m. ET): Jhonattan Vegas birdies 14 for three in four holes and a one-shot lead at 5 under.

The marquee final group of Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas are a collective 1 over. Thomas birdied Nos. 5 and 6 to move to 2 under but made back-to-back bogeys at Nos. 9 and 10 to fall to even par. That’s where he stands with seven holes to play. Spieth went birdie-par-bogey-bogey-birdie to finish his front nine and go out in even-par 36. He bogeyed 11 to fall to 1 over.

In the 34-man field, Thomas is T-18 and Spieth finds himself T-23.

UPDATE NO. 5 (7:57 p.m. ET): Marc Leishman had the lead alone at 5 under before a bogey at No. 11. He now co-leads at 4 under with Jhonattan Vegas (through 12) and Si Woo Kim (F).

Kim has the clubhouse lead after a 4-under 69.

UPDATE NO. 4 (7:10 p.m. ET): Rickie Fowler birdies Nos. 7 and 8 to move to 3 under. That ties him for the lead with Brian Harman.

UPDATE NO. 3 (5:35 p.m. ET): We now have a six-way tie for the lead at 2 under. See all the names below.

UPDATE NO. 2 (4:43 p.m. ET): Austin Cook is now the outright leader at 2 under after back-to-back birdies at Nos. 4 and 5. He’s the leader by one over Patton Kizzire, Chris Stroud and Si Woo Kim.

UPDATE NO. 1 (4:10 p.m. ET): The action is underway! Welcome to the PGA Tour in 2018!

The first group teed off an hour ago. So far, we have two players (Austin Cook and Si Woo Kim) in the lead at 1 under. But it’s incredibly early. Regardless, PGA Tour golf is back!
