(New York) Denny McCarthy, author of a thunderous card of 60, at -10, by succeeding ten birdies, has already taken off on the evening of the first round of the Traveler’s Championship, PGA Tour tournament, Thursday in Cromwell (Connecticut) .

The American is two strokes ahead of his compatriot Keegan Bradley and the Australian Adam Scott, victim of a slack at the end of the course with two bogeys on the last four holes.

World No.1 Scottie Scheffler is fourth, three lengths behind the leader.

This first round was marked by a feat from Rory McIlroy, who slammed the first hole in one of his career on the PGA Tour, on the par 3 of hole N.8. But the Northern Irishman conceded two bogeys on the last two holes and only returned a 68.
