Top 10 Photos: Hero World Challenge, Round One

Round two of the Hero World Challenge is on tap in a couple of hours. The 2016 version of the Bahamas based event is setting up to be a barn-burner – with 8 players all within 4 shots of the lead.

J.B. Holmes leads the star-studded field at 8-under while rising (super)star Hideki Matsuyama is one back at -7 – and one ahead of Dustin Johnson who is at 6-under.

Players such as Henrik Stenson, Matt Kuchar, Rickie Fowler, and Jordan Spieth are all within striking distance, and only a few shots out of the lead.
