LIV Golf League’s second season got underway Friday with the first round at Mayakoba in Mexico.
Smash GC’s Jason Kokrak fired an opening-round bogey-free 6-under 65 to earn himself the 18-hole co-lead. Crushers GC’s Paul Casey, the other player at 6 under, used eight birdies to also get to the top of the leaderboard.
Peter Uihlein, Carlos Ortiz and Talor Gooch all sit a 4 under, two shots back. Five players, including Dustin Johnson, are 3 under and three back. Cameron Smith is 2 under after day one while Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau opened with rounds of 1 over.
Thomas Pieters, the newest member of LIV Golf, shot a 5-over 76.
The shot of the day was delivered from Casey.
