Seung-Yul Noh fired a bogey-free, 9-under 62 on Friday to grab a 1-storke lead after the opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Noh, who has one win on the European Tour, missed the course record by one shot, but his 62 was a career-best by three strokes on the PGA Tour.
Chris Kirk is alone in second place at minus-8 at the TPC Boston.
Former champion Tiger Woods opened with a 7-under 64. He was joined in third place by Ryan Moore and Jeff Overton.
World No. 1 Rory McIlroy and Bryce Molder share sixth place at minus-6.
Woods started on the back nine and collected birdies at the 11th and 13th. After four straight pars, he 2-putted for birdie on the par-5 18th to kick off a stellar run of golf.
