Leishman Goes Really Low At Byron Nelson

  • Leishman shoots 61 at new Nelson course

Leishman made the turn in four-under before reeling off three successive birdies on the 10th, 11th and 12th holes.

Australian Marc Leishman fired a career-low 61 for a three-shot lead after the first round of the AT&T Byron Nelson at its new home in Dallas on Thursday while local favourite Jordan Spieth failed to make a move.

The AT&T Byron Nelson switched from TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas to the new Trinity Forest Golf Club this year and while the course was new to Leishman, his impressive form at the tournament continued.

The 34-year-old Victorian, a three-time victor on the PGA Tour, started with an eagle on the par-5 first hole and never looked back, claiming another eagle at the 14th to go with six birdies.

"I didn't get ahead of myself, which was good - 61, I'll take that".

"I didn't think about that", he said.

It's worth mentioning that this synopsis is incredibly similar to that of John Jackson Miller's 2013 novel, Kenobi . According to TMZ , the long-rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi solo film is getting closer to becoming a reality.


Leishman had previously posted four scores of 62, including his opening round in last year's BMW Championship which he went on to win by five shots.

The Waterford man carded an opening round 66 to sit at five-under par, but Leishman made the running on day one, sitting on nine-under par with just a couple of holes to play.

Former U.S. Masters champion Adam Scott, seeking his first PGA Tour win since 2016, mixed six birdies with two bogeys to reach four-under and a share of 23rd.

"It's a pretty good combination for a good score".

"I was hitting my irons well and hitting every fairway is key around here". Randolph finished his day tied for 120th at 1 over; Marc Leishman is in 1st at 10 under; Jimmy Walker and J.J. Spaun are tied for 2nd at 7 under; and Tyler Duncan, Peter Uihlein, Ethan Tracy, Jonathan Byrd, Keith Mitchell, Aaron Wise, Sam Saunders, and Abraham Ancer are tied for 4th at 6 under.

A three-time major victor, Spieth - who was tied for 41st at The Players Championship - had three birdies and a bogey on a steady day, when Leishman sizzled.
