Two-time defending champ Daniel Berger is trying to become the first to win his first three titles at the same tournament since Leonard Gallett at the Wisconsin PGA in 1929, 1931 and 1933 and the tour's first three-peat victor since Steve Stricker at the John Deere Classic between 2009 and 2011.

Power birdied two of the last three holes to cap a five-under 65 to claim the early clubhouse lead at TPC Southwind in Memphis, and his score held up for the remainder of the day despite 11 players all getting to four under par.

The world number two provided a highlight after taking off one shoe and standing in the water before chipping in for birdie on the par-four 12th hole.

The Irish Olympian, who was disqualified from the Fort Worth Invitational last month after signing for an incorrect scorecard, birdied three of the first five holes while making his only bogey of the day at the fourth.

Mickelson, who has six runner-up finishes at the US Open and could complete a career Grand Slam with a victory at Shinnecock Hills next week, said he kept his round together despite some late struggles at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee. "I just got lucky and it went in the hole". Johnson, the world's second-ranked player, had five birdies and one double-bogey.

Koepka got to 5 under with a string of four straight birdies but his second bogey cost him a share of the lead. "We hit some pretty poor shots". "We were all over the place".

Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy tee off together in the morning of the first round. He bounced right back with a birdie, and his sixth birdie came after hitting his approach from 128 yards to 3 feet to match his low round of the year.

Corey Conner of Listowel, Ont., is 2 under while Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., and Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ont., opened with 70s.
