"Besides the first two holes, I felt like I hit the ball horribly. I did not feel like I kind of knew where the ball was going today," Reed told the Golf Channel after a round of 67.

Best round - Daniel Lingmerth (65)

The Swede trimmed shots on seven holes Thursday, while only making two bogeys on a very tough TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm course on Day 1. Lingmerth fired an opening-round 65 to grab the lead at 5-under.
