LAS VEGAS (AP) Robert Streb went from making putts to wondering if he would ever miss Thursday in the CJ Cup at Summit. It led to his best start to any tournament and his lowest score on the PGA Tour.

And on this day at The Summit Club, his 11-under 61 was only good for a one-shot lead.

A world-class field lit up a very pretty and mostly defenseless golf course overlooking the Las Vegas Strip. The result was the lowest average score - 68.95 - for the opening round on the PGA Tour all year.
