La Quinta Brilliance: Zach Johnson Leads Charge with Stunning 62, While Hoey and Bezuidenhout Join the Sublime 63 Club!

Both Rico Hoey and Christiaan Bezuidenhout shot 63s to join the leaderboard. Xander Schauffele, Patrick Cantlay, and amateur Nick Dunlap at 64 are close behind. Johnson called La Quinta Country Club one of the purest on the PGA Tour, a perfect environment for these incredible performances.

Johnson’s 2023 Ryder Cup captaincy distracted him from his game. After his recovery, Johnson acknowledged his enthusiasm for the sport and the task ahead. His round was enhanced by his love of La Quinta Country Club’s immaculate conditions.

Johnson says the course’s unique challenge of shaping shots adds to its appeal. He started slowly, but a stunning run of birdies, including six consecutive ones, propelled him to a 7-under 29 on the front nine. Johnson added three more birdies on his final nine to his stellar opening round.
