Jordan Spieth Struggles With Putting, Opens 2019 With Three-Over 73

Putnam, who played at Pepperdine, sank a five-foot birdie putt on the last hole for his ninth birdies in a 62 that included a bogey on the 15th hole. He needed just 23 putts, making 12 of 12 from 10 feet and rolling in birdie putts of 27, 21 and 28 feet during his round. "Then they got off, and so I had to figure out why I did them well and how to train it back".

It started with a 50-foot birdie putt on the 11th hole.

Fortunately a rules official reminded him of his error before he had played his next shot.

"I had a few mistakes here and there but hit my irons great", he said.

Starting his golf year earlier than in recent times following a lengthy layoff, former world No.1 Scott mixed five bogeys with three birdies in a two-over 72.

Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., shot a 2-under 68 and Roger Sloan of Merritt, B.C., is 1-under.

Rookie Adam Svensson of Canada didn't look anything like the guy who missed the cut in his last three tournaments during the Fall portion of the PGA Tour's 2018-19 season.

"I was a little up in the air about the speed of the greens because I didn't get to play a practice round after I got stung by a bee on the foot down by the swimming pool and couldn't walk on it", said Putnam who claimed his first PGA Tour victory previous year in the Barracuda Championship. This is his third year playing the Sony Open, so the course is not new to him. "As long as I don't let it get to me like I did past year at times". "I was just sitting around all yesterday and couldn't even hit a shot". Statistically, he made just over 174 feet of putts, from a 5-footer on the closing hole (his shortest birdie putt) to his longest birdie on the 14th at just under 30 feet.

Spieth said he decided he "really could come down and try out the very little work I was able to put in, but at least knock some rust off and gather some information about where I am at and hopefully make some adjustments going forward into the season".
