So much for jet lag. Despite making the 9,000-mile trip from Las Vegas to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, earlier this week, Ryan Moore remained in top form at the CIMB Classic on Thursday.
Moore continued his hot play to open the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season, carding a 9-under 63 to grab first-round lead by two shots over Keegan Bradley.
Sergio Garcia (66) was another shot back while five players were tied at 67. Phil Mickelson carded a 71, saying afterward that he could not remember swinging this badly in his career. Click here to read more on Mickelson.
After carding rounds of 69-63-69-68 to finish T9 at last week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, Moore made 10 birdies at the CIMB, finishing with a tap-in birdie on the 18th after stuffing his approach to a foot.
Moore finished 68th in the FedExCup standings in 2013, picking up a trio of top 10s. He's looking for his first PGA TOUR win since the 2012 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
Moore tied for fifth at the CIMB in 2010.
