Corey Conners steadied a 5-under-par 31-34=65 during the opening round of the Wyndham Championship, positioning himself inside the top 10 after the morning wave.

The Canadian entered the week ranked 128th in the FedExCup standings, three spots out of the Playoffs and three spots out of maintaining his full playing status. With the pressure on, Conners opened with a bogey-free, 4-under 31 on his outward nine. That included a pair of birdie putts from outside 20 feet. The PGA TOUR rookie entered the week ranked 192nd in strokes gained putting but walked off the course gaining 1.453 strokes putting today. If he can maintain even an average putting performance over the next three rounds, he should be able to keep his name in the mix and have a good chance to secure his PGA TOUR card.

Soren Kjeldsen cruised to a 4-under-par 33-33=66 to end round one of the Nordea Masters at Hills GC in Gothenburg, Sweden four back of the leader Clement Sordet.

The Dane was T2 on his last start in this tournament and now he is set to tag another high finish. If he makes the top 20 it will be a fifth in seven appearances in the event. He's also set for an eighth cut made on the bounce. He needs a strong finish, however, because he is just 101st on the Race to Dubai. He opened on the back nine and went bogey-birdie at the 13th and 14th. Three birdies in three holes followed at the 18th, first and second, but he then dropped a shot at the third. There was no more movement until close to the end of the lap when he ticked the eighth and ninth to move into the top ten on the live leaderboard.

D.A. Points picked off eight birdies on his way toward a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in round one of the Wyndham Championship, taking a seat inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

Points is making his seventh appearance at Sedgefield Country Club and he brings a pair of top 20s with him (2014, 2016). Today, he striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation. From there, he rolled in four putts from outside 16 feet including a 55'5" birdie bomb at the par-4 14th (+2.441 SGP as he walked off the course). Points entered the week ranked 214th in the FedExCup standings but he does have his PGA TOUR card locked up for another season thanks to his victory at the 2017 Puerto Rico Open.

Richard Green played a strong early hand in one of his rare outings on the European Tour; he carved a 5-under-par 34-31=65 to life T4 in the Nordea Masters at Hills GC in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The veteran Aussie is making only his fifth start in 2018, all the previous have come at Australasian venues or, in the case of the Shotclock Masters, somewhere he has won at. In the case of this Scandinavian start he has a connection via his girlfriend Marianne Skarpnord who plays on the Ladies European Tour and hails from Norway. He has played on the Nordic League and Challenge Tour in the area this year. That said his last performance was in Fiji when he was T14, a first top 20 on the ET since 2016. On Thursday he ticked 3 and 4 on the front nine, then 10, 12, 15 and 16 on the back, however he also made bogey at the 11th. He sits three back of leader Clement Sordet.

Martin Flores tossed together a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, sharing a piece of second place, five off the torrid pace set by Brandt Snedeker.

Flores posted a T7 here last year to jump inside the FedExCup Playoffs bubble. He's looking to repeat that effort as he starts this week ranked 162nd in the FEC standings. He's outside of the bubble to even earn conditional status currently. If he finished in T2 (his current position) then he'd climb to 110th but he doesn't have much wiggle room to drop any further down the board. There are still 54 holes to go but he's off to a strong start after gaining 5+ strokes with the putter today. He pelted 14 greens in regulation and then rolled in three putts from outside 20 feet before his day was done. Flores hasn't posted a top 10 since his T7 here last year so he has quite the uphill battle ahead of him.

Thomas Aiken crafted a 4-under-par 35-31=66 opening lap in the Nordea Masters at Hills GC in Gothenburg, Sweden, four shots back of the early leader Clement Sordet.

The South African hasn't made the top ten since the Tshwane Open in March and is in need of returning there as he currently stands at 140th on the Race to Dubai. It is also on track to be the first time he has been in the top ten after 18 holes since the Sicilian Open in May. Early in his front nine he made back-to-back par breakers at the third and fourth, but gave one of the shots back to the card at the sixth. The back nine was flawless and featured a late burst. He ticked the 11th, and then vaulted himself to T7 on the live leaderboard with red numbers at 17 and 18.

Brandt Snedeker was firing on all cylinders en route to an 11-under-par 27-32=59 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, signing for his career-low round to join an elite group of golfers to shoot sub-60 on TOUR and also snag the early clubhouse lead as the morning wave starts to wrap up.

Snedeker started his round on the 10th tee with BOGEY-PAR-PAR. He rattled off four straight birdies after that, with two of them coming from 26 feet. The putter would stay hot as he played the final 15 holes at 12-under, despite missing a six-footer along the way. The ball-striking highlight came at the par-4 sixth when he holed out from 176 yards for an untraditional eagle. He'd cap off his round with a 20'4" birdie putt (from the fringe) to become the 9th player ever to post a sub-60 round (Jim Furyk x2) on the PGA TOUR. Snedeker walked off the course gaining 6.198 strokes on approach. This eclipses Si Woo Kim's course record of 60 and also beats Snedeker's previous low on the PGA TOUR (61, 3 times). One of those came here at Sedgefield (R2, 2015) so he clearly feels comfy in Greensboro.

Tapio Pulkkanen blitzed the back nine at the Hills GC in Gothenburg on his way to a 5-under-par 29-36=65 in the opening round of the Nordea Masters.

The Finn is playing as near to home as the 2018 European Tour schedule will allow and he seemed excited by the prospect on the first morning, rushing his way through his first nine holes (the back set) in just those 29 swings. He began the assault with a hat-trick of red numbers at the 11th, 12th and 13, before adding two more birdies at the 16th and 18th. He then completely settled down with a front nine of nine pars. It meant he settled for T4 on the live leaderboard, three shots back of the early pace setter Clement Sordet of France. After a bright start to his rookie year (T3 in the Joburg Open) he is yet to visit the top 20 again. This week now represents a golden opportunity; he is 153rd on the Race to Dubai.
