In his first outing since claiming a maiden major victory in style at Winged Foot, DeChambeau matched his career-best score on the PGA Tour with a nine-under-par 62 at TPC Summerlin.
That earned him a one-shot lead over five fellow Americans, Austin Cook, Harold Varner III, Scott Harrington and Patrick Cantlay, with six players sitting on seven-under.
