Jordan Spieth picked up where he left off at the U.S. Open last week at Erin Hills, with a birdie. In fact, Spieth birdied three of his first four holes and five of his first eight en route to a 7-under 63 in Round 1 of the Travelers Championship. 
 
He made eight birds in all and shot the lowest first round of his PGA Tour career.
 
Spieth finished in the top five in the field on Thursday in strokes gained on approach shots.
 
Spieth still has a long way to go, and he has monumental chasers in Rory McIlroy (3 under) and Patrick Reed (3 under).
 
Defending Travelers Champion Jim Furyk is three-under.
