Dylan Frittelli opened with a three-under-par 67 on Thursday in the first round of the PGA Tour’s Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas to be in a share of seventh place.

Frittelli, a Texas resident, made four birdies and a bogey, and, like just about everyone else, found himself some distance behind the first-round leader Harry Hall of England, who carded a stunning bogey-free eight-under-par 62 to lead by three from American Harris English.

There were four players in a share of third on four-under, and then Frittelli shared seventh with 14 other players, including world number one Scottie Scheffler, as well as Max Homa. Viktor Hovalnd of Norway, who finished second in last week’s PGA championship, opened with a one-over-par 71 for a share of 68th.

Christiaan Bezuidenhout opened with a level-par 70 for a share of 51st, while MJ Daffue and Garrick Higgo were on three-over in a share of 96th. Erik van Rooyen was on six-over in 117th in the 120-man field.
