Sebastian Munoz jumped out to an early one-shot lead over Justin Thomas and Tyrrell Hatton at the Zozo Championship on Thursday, shooting an 8-under 64 in Round 1 at Sherwood Country Club.

The Colombian bogeyed his first hole but bounced back with three straight birdies and two hole-out eagles en route to the lowest score of Day 1. Munoz placed ninth at last week's CJ Cup and has three top-10 finishes in his previous six PGA Tour starts.

After posting even on the front nine, Thomas finished his day by going eagle-birdie-birdie to sit one off the early pace.

Hatton, who led after 18 holes at last week's event in Las Vegas, continued his recent run of incredible form with a one-bogey 65.

Here's how the leaderboard stands following Day 1:

Place Player To Par R1 Score
1 Sebastian Munoz -8 64
T2 Tyrrell Hatton -7 65
T2 Justin Thomas -7 65
T4 Brian Harman -6 66
T4 Lanto Griffin -6 66
T4 Kevin Kisner -6 66
T4 Harris English -6 66
T4 Dylan Frittelli -6 66

Tiger Woods shot a 76 in Round 1 of his Zozo Championship title defense. It marks his worst career round at Sherwood, where he's won five times in his career.
