Before the tournament, when McIlroy gave up on Reed’s greeting, Reed slammed a wooden tee at McIlroy, causing a war of nerves. Due to the bad weather and the sunset, only 12 out of 132 players finished the round. A whopping 66 people could not even start.
Reid swept 5 birdies (1 bogey). The early start of the first birdie on hole 2 (par 4) and consecutive birdies on holes 4 and 5 stood out. He made a bogey on hole 10 (par 5), but caught a ‘stepping bridge birdie’ on holes 12 and 14 to compete for the lead. McIlroy tied 4 birdies and 2 bogeys. In the first half, he exchanged 2 birdies and 2 bogeys, hardly reducing the number of strokes. However, in the second half of the 2nd and 3rd holes, he showed his potential by catching consecutive birdies.
