LAS VEGAS: Harold Varner III is looking to make up for last week. Paul Casey is looking to make up for last year.
Both are off to flying starts at LIV Golf Las Vegas.
Varner and Casey each shot 7-under 63s to grab the first-round lead on a chilly Thursday at Las Vegas Country Club. They share a two-shot advantage over Jason Kokrak and a trio of RangeGoats GC players – captain Bubba Watson, Thomas Pieters and new acquisition Matthew Wolff.
Not surprising, the RangeGoats lead the team competition at 15 under, one shot ahead of Kokrak and his Smash GC team.
