John Daly played the first five holes of his first PGA Tour Champions major in 4 under Thursday at the Regions Tradition.
Daly birdied Nos. 1 and 2 before dunking his third shot at the par-5 fifth for an eagle:
Unfortunately, Daly would give all those strokes back with a double bogey at No. 7 and bogeys at Nos. 9 and 11.
The two-time major champion did rebound with two more back-nine birdies to open with 2-under 70.
Daly sat four shots behind then-leader Gene Sauers (66) when he walked off the course.
