For the second straight week on the PGA TOUR's jaunt to Asia, Scott Piercy ended day one in the top four, this time after compiling a first-round 2-under-par 34-36=70 at the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES in South Korea to sit T4 and two off the lead held by fellow American Chez Reavie.

Piercy opened with 65 at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia last Thursday while four starts earlier he was T5 after R1 of The Northern Trust although he could only finish T27 and T48 respectively at those two events so needs to do a better job of cashing in on his strong openers. The World No. 252 dropped a shot on his opening hole at Jeju Island today but hit back with a run of 3-3-3. That comprised par at No. 2, eagle at No. 3 after chipping in and birdie at No. 4. With the wind making conditions tough for scoring, Piercy had to grind from there but held his position with a string of pars and a bogey-birdie exchange at 13 and 14. He found 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 GIRs. This is his tournament debut.

After failing to get anything going for most of the day, Ian Poulter birdied his final two holes to complete a solid 2-under-par 36-34=70 in round one of the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES, the late boost to his score lifting the Englishman into a tie for fourth place and just two back from leader Chez Reavie.

Starting his day at 10, Poulter opened with a pair of pars before ticking the par-5 12th hole. After that, his only deviation from par was bogey-4 at 17 but Poulter stayed patient and finally got some reward with red circles at 8 and 9. The World No. 35 now has four of five rounds under par at Jeju Island (finished T15 last year) and we've seen in the past how good he is at this time of year and in this part of the world. Poults has victories in Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Japan so would love to add South Korea to his collection. Today, he piped 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens and got up and down on all four occasions when he missed the dancefloor.

Byeong Hun An had it going in round one of the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES before settling for a 2-under-par 33-37=70, the Korean local finishing the day in a tie for fourth place and just two adrift of pacesetter Chez Reavie.

That's a fine effort in front of his home fans although An may be a little frustrated it wasn't even better after getting to 4-under with six to play thanks to birdies at 1, 5, 7 and 12. His dropped shots came at 13 and 15 before he steadied the ship with a trio of closing pars. While Reavie and Danny Willett (T2) hit all 14 of Jeju Island's wide fairways, An only found eight although he did still manage to pelt 14 GIRs. The 27-year-old was T11 here last year and T13 at the CIMB Classic last Sunday and was a popular pick with gamers this week.

Local man Si Woo Kim gave his home fans plenty of roars on day one of the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES, scribbling six birdies on his card in a 3-under-par 35-34=69, good enough for tied second spot.

That's just one swing behind leader Chez Reavie and puts the Korean level with Danny Willett. Kim's day got off to a rocky start as he swallowed double bogey-5 at the second hole but the 23-year-old responded well with par breakers at 3, 6 and 9 to turn in under par. Coming home he outpaced a single bogey at 13 with gains at 11, 12 and 18, the walk-off birdie drawing a fist-pump as he holed a downhiller from the fringe. This is the first time Kim has been in the top three after R1 in his PGA TOUR Career. He achieved it by hitting 10 (of 14) fairways, hitting 15 GIRs and ranking fifth in Putts Per GIR.

World No. 342 Danny Willett put on a stripe show in round one of the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES in South Korea, firing a 3-under-par 33-36=69 to end the day in tied second spot with Si Woo Kim and just a single stroke behind leader Chez Reavie.

After shaking off injury and loss of form, the 2016 Masters champ showed some decent form again over the summer with four top 25s in five starts but has missed cuts at the Safeway Open and the British Masters in the last two weeks. However, he was back on it today and piped all 14 fairways and missed just a single green in regulation despite the windy conditions. The Englishman bogeyed the opening hole but responded with a trio of birdies at 4, 5 and 6 before adding another on the par-5 9th. He got it to 4-under with a gain at 12 but gave the shot back at 13 and rounded off with five pars. Willett was also in second place after R1 of July's Irish Open where he went on to post T6 so don't be surprised to see him stay prominent on the leaderboad as the week continues.

Hitting 14 fairways out of 14, Chez Reavie authored a 4-under-par 35-33=68 to post a one-shot lead over Danny Willett and Si Woo Kim after the first round of the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES in South Korea.

It's a further stroke back to Byeong Hun An, Rod Pampling, Michael Kim, Ian Poulter, Scott Piercy, Nick Watney and Austin Cook. Reavie shot a 66 to sit tied second after the opening lap here last year (finished T15) and he's quickly into his stride again this week despite the cool and windy conditions which saw just three players shoot in the 60s. Playing in the 08:55 group from 10th tee, the 36-year-old exchanged a birdie at 12 with a bogey at 13 before getting under par again for the day with another circle at 16. He made his move to the top of the board with par breakers at 1, 2 and 8 on a flawless second nine. As well as splitting every fairway, he pelted 15 GIRs. This is Reavie's fourth R1 lead on the PGA Tour in solo play (also led this year's Zurich Classic). He rode the first to victory in the 2008 Canadian Open but had to settle for T26 at Pebble Beach the last time he set the pace on day one in 2016. The World No. 64 closed with twin 69s for T43 in last week's CIMB Classic.

Joost Luiten is looking forward to playing "without any pain" when he makes his comeback at this week's Andalucia Valderrama Masters in Spain.

The Dutchman has finished runner-up in his last two starts at the course (2016 and 2017) but enters this week having not pegged it up since May's BMW PGA Championship due to a wrist injury. That's given gamers a dilemma although at least a more informed decision can be made now that Luiten has given this assessment in an interview with europeantour.com. "The wrist is really good. It's good to be out here again, see all the guys and play without any pain," he said. "I'm feeling good. It's been a tough time but the recovery is going really well and I'm fit to play. I've been practising for the last couple of weeks so I'm ready to go again. I know it's going to be a difficult week for me because I haven't been playing for five months and it's a tough course to come back at. But you've got to start somewhere so I'd rather start at a place that I love."

Hyungjoon Lee finished solo 60th at the inaugural CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES and he returns this year for second helpings.

The 26-year-old posted rounds of 73-72-79-74=298 (+10) here last year while battling blustery conditions. It was also his PGA TOUR debut, and this will be his second start on the big stage. Lee cracks the field thanks to his spot in the Genesis Points standings on the KPGA Korean Tour (2nd). The youngster arrives with top 20s in 8 of his last 10 starts, worldwide. He has won an event in each of the last four years but has yet to stamp that passport for 2018. Lee brings youth, course knowledge, comfort in Korea, and winning pedigree to the table. Gamers might want to take a flyer on him in weekly formats that would reward a potential top 20.
