Wind blows Thomas off course at the CJ Cup

Thomas lives up to billing at CJ Cup

American Thomas, the 2017 FedEx Cup and US PGA Championship victor, was in sublime form in Thursday's opening road in Jeju, carding a nine-under-par 63. "The wind was tricky today but I was able to save par a lot and then played solid on the back nine".

Back-to-back birdies briefly put Thomas back at the top of the pack, but a bogey at the last left him two off the pace in a tie for fourth.

England's Ian Poulter finished two under par after carding a second successive 71.

Lucas Glover also enjoyed a five-under round to shoot up the leader board and sit one shot off the lead, alongside Scott Brown. "I really fought back hard to get it to one-over going into 18, which was kind of our goal after 11 or 12 holes". "It started off with a really badly played bogey and then I went on a seven-hole stretch where I kind of went unconscious and that was pretty much most of my round".

He dropped his only shot at the par-three second hole but made amends with a birdie on the sixth.

"On the last nine holes, I felt like, I had a really good opportunity to shoot something really, really low so that was a little bit of a bummer", he said.

Smith is at seven-under through two rounds after a six-birdie day. "I hit a couple of good tee shots that were in the middle of the fairway that just had bad lies". Added to them were seven birdies, and two bogeys, one of which came on the opening hole.

Shot of the day: Cody Gribble didn't have much of a day - he shot 81 - but he did make an eagle at the last after nearly holing this shot for an albatross.

"It was a weird day", said the 23-year-old FedExCup champion, who has been in sizzling form since winning his first Major in August and who was recently voted PGA Tour Player of the Year for 2017 by his peers. "I "ballsed" it up", Casey said frankly. Last week's victor, Pat Perez added 71 to his 69 and was tied-15th at four-under.
