6:20 p.m.: Leishman just threw an eagle on the board at the par-5 14th hole. He’s sitting pretty at 9 under through 15 and actually has an outside shot at 59 if he can finish with three consecutive birdies.

5:20 p.m.: Marc Leishman takes the outright lead with three straight birdies. Didn’t really do anything in two starts after his ninth place at the Masters, but wasn’t too long ago he was contending seemingly every week. Currently 7 under through 12.

4:35 p.m.: Spieth has gathered himself with back-to-back birdies to get back in the red. He’s 1 under through 9 and currently T-60. Local Texan Jimmy Walker is having the best round of the afternoon wave thus far, he’s 5 under through 9 and just one shot off the lead.

3:45 p.m.: Bogey for Spieth at No. 5 and he’s now 1 over through 6. Currently T-116 and looking to get something going. Marc Leishman and Jimmy Walker are beginning to make their moves in the afternoon wave, both players at 3 under through 6.

3 p.m.: Jordan Spieth is underway and sits at even par through three. Currently a six-way tie for first with Sam Saunders, Aaron Wise, Keith Mitchell, Abraham Ancer, Jonathan Byrd and Ethan Tracy T-1 at 6-under 65 for the afternoon.

1:15 p.m.: We knew the setup at Trinity Forest was going to be a bit conservative given that this is its first year hosting the event and the Tour has long-term plans in mind for this unique Texas track. That’s certainly proved to be the case early in Round 1, with a host of 65s already in the clubhouse. Sam Saunders, Aaron Wise and Keith Mitchell are in at 6-under 65. Mexico’s Abraham Ancer was at 7 under but just made bogey at 17 to fall back to 6 under. Jordan Spieth is set to tee off in 30 minutes. Stay tuned.
