Leishman has one PGA Tour win. Goss is playing in his second tournament as a pro and was the low amateur at the Masters in April.

First-round leader Greg Chalmers has an afternoon tee time after a 66 Thursday.

Tournament host Tiger Woods also tees off in the afternoon. He shot a 3-over 74 in the first round in his return to competition following back surgery.
