Adam Svensson leads rd 1 of Sony Open in Hawaii

American Brian Harman

"The putter was hot", said Putnam, a 29-year-old who claimed his first US PGA Tour title at the Barracuda Championship in August.

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

He made birdie on half of his holes and took only 23 putts for an eight-under 62 - the lowest score of his PGA Tour career.

On Thursday, Spieth had to be reminded not once but twice on his opening nine to drop from the knee, first at the 15th hole and again at the 18th.

"I'm like, 'Wouldn't it just be a re-drop anyway?' What's the big deal?'" Spieth said.

It was an eventful day for Spieth beyond his brushes with the new rules, as he struggled with his ball-striking and his putting on his way to a 3-over 73.

Walker could not find the ball and had to replay another one.

He caught himself from dropping shoulder-height behind the 18th green. It was sticking up right in the line on about a 4-footer.

"All in all, I got a test of most of the new rules today", he said.

Starting his golf year earlier than in recent times after a lengthy layoff, Scott mixed five bogeys with three birdies.

Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., shot a 2-under 68 and Roger Sloan of Merritt, B.C., is 1-under. Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ont., (71) and Abbotsford's Adam Hadwin (72) are both well back of Svensson's lead.

Although limited practice time as he enjoyed his wedding and honeymoon mean he isn't sure just what to expect this week, he said he thought the break did him good.

"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 past year in the Barracuda Championship.

"I was three or four years old and my dad was teeing off and I guess I chose to drive the cart right into the lake", Svensson said of his toddler days.

Putnam, 29, has been a consistent performer in his two-plus seasons on the PGA Tour, without making too many headlines.
