With play suspended for darkness on Thursday in the opening round of the PGA Tour’s Butterfield Bermuda Championship, Garrick Higgo got off to a fine start with a four-under-par 67 putting him in a share of fourth.
Higgo had a quiet opening nine, making pars all the way except for a dropped shot on the sixth, but he got things going on the homeward nine, with three birdies in a row from the 10th to the 12th. He picked up two more, on the 15th and 18th to round out his scoring.
He was just two strokes off the lead which was held by Brandon Hagy and Chad Ramey of the United States. Their countryman Vincent Whaley was in third on five-under.
Dylan Frittelli opened up with a three-under 68 for a share of 10th. He made five birdies and two bogeys in his round. Christiaan Bezuidenhout was in a share of 34th after his first round of level-par 71. Dawie van der Walt battled his way to a five-over 76 and a share of 102nd.
