Las Vegas • Ryan Moore matched the course record and his career best with a 10-under 61 on Thursday in the first round of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
The former UNLV player had nine birdies, an eagle on the 341-yard, par-4 15th and a bogey in perfect conditions at TPC Summerlin to take a one-stroke lead in the Fall Series opener.
"Just one of those nice days," Moore said. "Got off to a great start. Kind of 7 under on the front nine and just kind of cruised the next nine. Made bogey there on my 17th hole, No. 8, which I wasn't too happy about. It was great to bounce back with a birdie on the ninth hole.
