Justin Thomas fires opening round 65 to grab share of BMW Championship lead

Justin Thomas and Jason Kokrak matched the Medinah course record with seven-under 65s to share the first round lead at the BMW Championship while a fit-again Tiger Woods struggled to get anything going and finished the day six off the pace.A shot behind the leading pair were 49-year-old Jim Furyk, Lucas Glover, Brandt Snedeker, Patrick Cantlay and Joel Dahmen, while Rickie Fowler and Australian Adam Scott headline a group of nine on 67, two back on the leaders.

The birdies were flying at Medinah Country Club as an elite 69-player field took advantage of ideal scoring conditions, and both Kokrak and Thomas could do little wrong on the rain-softened course on the outskirts of Chicago.Thomas turned in an error-free scorecard, highlighted by a storming finish of three straight birdies from the 14th.Kokrak, who is still chasing his first PGA Tour win, had only one blemish, a bogey at the ninth, to go along with an eagle and six birdies.
