Afternoon update for the first round

IRVING, Texas -- The low scores are less prevalent for the afternoon wave in Thursday's first round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship. But that hasn't prevented Marc Leishman from continuing his hot play of late.

Leishman is 5 under through 14 holes, the best round of any player still on the course. Although catching Keegan Bradley and his course-record 60 isn't likely, Leishman will be in great shape entering Friday's second round, particularly if prime scoring conditions are available when he tees off in the morning.

Patrick Reed (through 16 holes) and Andrew Svoboda (through 10) are also playing well this afternoon.

Jordan Spieth, the 19-year-old from Dallas who contended here three years ago, is 1 under through 13.

Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old amateur from China, is also 1 under through 10. He's looking to make the cut for the third time in as many starts on the PGA TOUR.
