S.Y. Noh got off to a fast start Thursday, tying the course record with a bogey-free, 11-under 60 to jump to the top of the leaderboard at the AT&T Byron Nelson in McKinney, Texas.
Noh made nine birdies and an eagle to take the outright 18-hole lead. His best finish so far this season has been a tie for 15th at the RSM Classic during the wrap-around season.
With a chance for 59 on the line, Noh decided to lay up on the par-5 18th. He’d go on to make a birdie to close out the 60.
“Today is going — everything going good. Even wedge game and putting, everything going good. I’m just trying to make birdie, just forget about the eagle 59,” Noh said after the round.
Here’s everything you need to know from the first round at TPC Craig Ranch.
