LOS ANGELES: Tony Finau set the first round pace at the Charles Schawb Challenge on Thursday, reaping the rewards from a change of putting grip to card a blistering six-under 64 and claim the lead at Colonial Country Club in Texas. The world No 15 took a one-shot lead after posting seven birdies and one bogey as he chases only his second PGA Tour victory. Jordan Spieth and Roger Sloan meanwhile were a shot back from Finau after both posting five-under-par 65s. Spieth, coming off a share of third place at the PGA Championship last week, had a wild round comprised of eight birdies, a double bogey and a bogey. The 25-year-old Texan managed to finish with a flourish however, with a birdie on his final hole of the day. Spieth and Sloan are two ahead of nine players tied on three under. (AFP)
