Branden Grace has plenty of work to do if he is to make the weekend in the PGA Tour’s Bermuda Championship after his opening round of two-over-par 73 on Friday left him in a share of 105th in the 132-man field.

Grace made three birdies and five bogeys in Southampton, Bermuda, as Peter Malnati carded an eight-under 63 to take a one-stroke lead over Doug Ghim and Ryan Armour.

The Bermuda Championship receives full status this year because the HSBC Champions in Shanghai was canceled by the Covis-19 pandemic, meaning Bermuda is not the same week as a World Golf Championships event. The winner receives an invitation to the Masters Tournament next year.

It also is the start of consecutive PGA Tour events allowing limited fans. The Houston Open has said it will sell no more than 2,000 tickets a day. The Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua, the first event of 2021, also announced this week it would have limited fans.
