Justin Rose and Harold Varner III are tied for the lead on PGA Tour's return

Justin Rose and Harold Varner III are tied for the lead on PGA Tour's return

Charles Schwab Challenge is the first event of PGA Tour in 91 days.
 
2018 winner Justin Rose, played his first nine holes with utmost confidence as he got three birdies in first three holes and followed by four more birdies in back nine for seven-under 63.
World no.124, Harold Varner III, took the early advantage by getting four birdies in first nine and three more (birdie) in back nine and sharing lead with a player (Justin Rose) who is ranked 110 places higher than him in world golf rankings.
 
The only Venezuelan player on the field, Jhonattan Vegas, had a strong performance and he almost got a chance to lead on day one by scoring 7 birdies but a bogey on hole eighth, cut short his score to -6 from -7 and Vegas finished at 64 for tied third.
 
From the two Mexican golfers participating (Carlos Ortiz and Abraham Ancher), only Ancer managed to get inside top-five and he had a very different start as Ancer started with a bogey on hole two for +1 later, he recovered by getting three birdies in remaining 7 holes for -2 in first nine. Ancer got his focus back after hole two's bogey and in last nine, he got four more birdies for a four-under-par and tied third.
 
Top three golfers in the world, ranked outside top 30 in round one of Charles Schwab Challenge:
This was the most shocking thing on golf's return as the top three golfers in the world Rory McIlroy, John Rahm and Brooks Koepka were ranked outside top thirty in leaderboards.
The world no. one golfer Rory McIlroy, got -2 on day one for a tied 39 and world no. 2 John Rahm, got just one under par for T57 and Brooks Koepka (world no. 3) got -2 and he is tied with McIlroy for T39.
Charles Schwab Challenge's round two will start from Friday and Patrick Rodgers, Carlos Ortiz is the first pair to tee off at 11:50 GMT.
