6:10 p.m.: Jason Day birdied the par-5 18th to take solo second and move just two shots off the lead after a 7-under 64 in Round 1. Looks like the former World No. 1 is coming around as we enter the home stretch of the 2016-17 season.
5:30 p.m.: Jason Day is having a nice afternoon, he’s 6 under through 16 with a chance to inch up the leaderboard and get closer to Leishman, who leads by three shots at 9 under. Day has a friend on the bag after parting ways with longtime caddie Col Swatton, who will remain his swing coach.
4:25 p.m.: Leishman is holding strong at 9 under through 17 and Spieth is now 6 under through 17 coming up on the closing par-5 18th hole. Presidents Cup captain’s pick Phil Mickelson turned in an inspired 5-under 66. Tony Finau and Russell Henley are also at 5 under for the day.
3:30 p.m.: Marc Leishman has raced out to the early lead at Conway Farms with a ton of birdies. He’s 8 under through 14 after a strong showing two weeks ago at the Dell Technologies Championship. Jordan Spieth is currently three off the lead at 5 under while Keegan Bradley is alone in second for now with a 6-under 65 for the day.
