HONOLULU — Zach Johnson and Chris Kirk kept clean playing cards on a lovely day and every shot 7-less than 63 to share the lead soon after the first round of the Sony Open.

Jordan Spieth was not as fortunate.

Spieth strike four trees with four pictures on the par-4 eighth hole — his 17th of the round — an episode that started with his tee shot caroming off a trunk and into a ditch. He wound up with a quadruple-bogey 8, marring his 8-birdie round for only a 69.

Defending champion Justin Thomas opened with a 67, but he was all smiles on the 17th hole. Thomas, an Alabama alum, received a wager that needed Georgia graduate Kevin Kisner to wear a Crimson Tide jersey from the tee box to the environmentally friendly.
