Three teams tied for QBE Shootout lead in Florida

The teams of Bryson DeChambeau-Kevin Na, Brian Harman-Patton Kizzire and Emiliano Grillo-Graeme McDowell lead the way after the first round of the Greg Norman-hosted QBE Shootout in Naples.

The three teams all managed to shoot 13-under-par 59s in day one’s scramble format, which sees all the players tee off on each hole, with each team then selecting their best shot to continue the hole.

Harman-Kizzire and Grillo-McDowell both birdied the final three holes at Tiburon Golf Club, while DeChambeau and Na’s progress was aided by an eagle at the par-5 14th.

LPGA Tour player Lexi Thompson and Tony Finau were two strokes back at 61 alongside Charley Hoffman-Gary Woodland and Charles Howell III-Luke List.

Defending champions Steve Stricker and Sean’ O’Hair were a shot further back.

The teams will play modified alternate shot on Saturday, with Sunday’s final round switching to the better ball format.
