AT&T Byron Nelson: Garcia ties lead, Spieth 1 back

Sergio Garcia, seeking his first PGA Tour win since 2012, shot a bogey-free seven-under par 63 in the first round of the AT&T Byron Nelson at TPC Four Seasons Resort on Thursday.

Garcia tied for the lead with Danny Lee and Johnson Wagner. Dallas native Jordan Spieth, meanwhile, posted a six-under par 64 and is one off the lead.

"It was a great round. I felt like I played really solid," Garcia said. "It wasn't spectacular, but I had some really nice saves, and then I really got it going on the back nine. I hit a couple of bombs there that really helped."

Play was suspended due to darkness on a day that included an hour weather delay to start the first round. The first round will resume on Friday morning.

Spieth, second in the World Ranking and attempting to dispel the notion that he is slumping, is tied for fourth with Dustin Johnson, Tom Hoge and Freddie Jacobsen.

Matt Kuchar and Brooks Koepka were two of nine players to shoot five-under 65s, two off the lead.

Bryson DeChambeau, playing in his fourth tournament since turning professional, was four-under par through 15 holes.
