Justin Rose birdied five of his final six holes for a 6-under 64 and a share of the first-round lead Thursday in the Travelers Championship.
Rose, the Memorial winner three weeks ago who failed to qualify for the U.S. Open last week at Pebble Beach, missed a 12-foot birdie putt on 18, leaving him tied with morning starters Padraig Harrington, Charlie Wi and Mathew Goggin.
Harrington birdied his first three holes and was 4 under at the turn. Goggin made his run on the back nine, birdieing Nos. 13, 15 and 17. Wi had four back-nine birdies.
All three completed play before a 90-minute rain delay and a windy afternoon finish.
