Rick Lamb, Seung-Yul Noh and Joel Dahmen (three relative unknowns) share the lead after all three shot 4-under 68 at Spyglass Hill, which is one of the three courses being used this week. Right on their heels is two-time major winner and the current No. 6 golfer in the world Jordan Spieth.
Spieth was 3 under at the time the tournament was suspended for weather with just two holes remaining on his round at Monterrey Peninsula. He made five birdies and two bogeys in the first round which qualified as an elite performance on a day when just 36-of-156 golfers found themselves under par.
Spieth's best finish at this event is a T4 in 2014. He also had a T7 in 2015. He's looking for his first win on the PGA Tour since he took the Dean & DeLuca Invitational last May.
Spieth will play the first three days with musician Jake Owen as well as Dustin Johnson and his partner Wayne Gretzky. Johnson is 1 under and T22 after Round 1.
No. 1 golfer in the world Jason Day finished at 2 under on his round at Monterrey Peninsula.
On Thursday, rain and wind pelted the west coast as scores skyrocketed and players took cover. Play resumes at 10:30 a.m. ET today.
