Hudson Swafford is part of a four-way tie atop the leaderboard at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship after posting a 65 in Round 1.

Swafford, Sepp Straka, Scott Harrington, and Tyler McCumber all shot a 7-under to open the week in Punta Cana. Straka was the only member of the co-leaders to card the low round in the morning wave, which played over a stroke easier, according to Data Golf.

Here's how the top of the leaderboard stands following Round 1:

Place Player To Par R1 Score
T1 Sepp Straka -7 65
T1 Scott Harrington -7 65
T1 Hudson Swafford -7 65
T1 Tyler McCumber -7 65
T5 Xinjun Zhang -6 66
T5 Joseph Bramlett -6 66

Ten players share the seventh spot at 5-under. Kyle Stanley, Jamie Lovemark, and Canadian David Hearn are included in that group.

Mackenzie Hughes, who came second in Punta Cana last season, shot a 67 on Day 1.

Henrik Stenson - the top-ranked player in the field - turned in a 2-under round to settle into a share of 46th.

Round 2 of the tournament begins Friday at 6:30 a.m. ET.
