The first day of the PGA Tour’s anticipated restart went off without a glitch. If it were a golf score, it would have to be considered a bogey-free, under-par round. The happiest person in the state of Texas has to be PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan.

“I think just being out here is successful, to be honest with you, getting started,’’ said Ryan Palmer, who struck the first tee shot of the tournament at 6:50 a.m. local time. (NYPost)
