Jordan Spieth, back in 4 years, starts with the lead in Honolulu

Jordan Spieth (29, USA), who missed the cut at the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Sony Open in January 2019, stopped walking afterwards.

Spieth, who returned to Waialei Country Club (par 70, 7,044 yards) in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA after four years, hit a 6-under-par 64 with 7 birdies and 1 bogey on the first day.

Spieth, who recorded the same number of strokes as Chris Kirk (USA), who won 4 times on the PGA Tour, holed out with a joint lead in the 메이저사이트 first round. Since the afternoon group players are in the middle of the game, there is a possibility of a slight change in the rankings.

Spieth, who passed the 14th place in the world rankings this week to Kim Joo-hyung (21) and became 15th in the world, ranked 3rd alone in 2017, his personal best result.

Spieth lifted the 13th PGA Tour trophy at RBC Heritage in April of last year, and is participating in the third regular tournament entering the new 2022-23 season. Last week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, he made his first top 25 of the season with a tie for 13th.

Spieth started from the 10th hole (par 4) and caught a birdie from the first hole. The birdie added in hole 12 (par 4) was replaced with the bogey in hole 13 (par 4), which sent the tee shot to the fairway bunker. 

Afterwards, Spieth, who was on the rise by catching birdies in a row on the 18th hole (par 5) and the 1st hole (par 4), cut out the birdies on the 3rd (par 4), 5th (par 4), and 7th (par 3) holes. raised the rankings.

In the first round, Spieth shot an iron shot with a green hit rate of 83.3% (15/18), and recorded 1.60 putts when hitting the green.

Like Spieth, Kirk, who recorded seven birdies and one bogey on the scorecard that day, has not added a win since winning the Crowne Plaza Invitational in May 2015.
