Reavie, Glover Share Lead After Day One at Zurich Classic

Chez Reavie and Lucas Glover teamed up for a 12-under 60 and share the first-round lead of the Zurich Classic with Xinjun Zhang and Zecheng Dou Zhang.

Reavie and Glover finished their first day at TPC Louisiana bogey-free with 12 birdies. The duo took advantage of all the par-5s, making gains on each of the four.

“Well, Chez started well and I picked it up in the middle of the back nine. He closed it off and then we both played really well on the front,” said Glover.

“Just kind of ham and egged it, I guess, as they would say.”

The Chinese duo, meanwhile, birdied the final three holes to match the day’s low score and share the first-round marquee in New Orleans.

A logjam of six teams sit T3 at 10-under par, including last season’s runners-up Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown, who started hot, but finsihed their final four holes with three pars and one birdie.

QUOTABLE

“I think we’re both really good ball strikers. We wanted to strategize properly, and so I would lay back in some of the fairways and let him get more aggressive on the tees. We seem to read putts very similar together, and kind of the way we pick spots and certain points of the line. We’re just very comfortable helping each other out. If I tell him something and he’s not all in, then he’s going to do what he wants and I’m completely good with it, and vice versa.”
