Justin Rose shot an impressive eight-under-par 63 as he blasted into the early first-round lead in the BMW Championship at the Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Illinois.
The Englishman grabbed a total of nine birdies, with his only slip up coming on the 13th hole, when he shipped a bogey on the par four.
American Jim Furyk, last year's FedEx Cup winner, carded a three-under-par 68 to leave him five shots off the in-form Rose.
Swede Robert Karlsson signed for a two-under-par 69, along with US hotshot Rickie Fowler and Zach Johnson, while Lucas Glover was just one shot back after a solid 70.
