    Dylan Frittelli is two shots off the pace after a very decent start to the Zozo Championship at Sherwood Country Club on Thursday.

    The South African started his week on the front foot by carding an opening-round 66 that saw him conclude the day on six under par and in T4.

    Frittelli was particularly impressive on the front nine by sinking four birdie putts before battling through two drop shots on the 11th and 12t holes to add four further birdies to his scorecard.

    The 30-year-old, who is still searching for a second PGA Tour title, will, however, be in pursuit of hunting down leader Sebastian Munoz, who finished the first round on eight under thanks to a brilliant 64.

    The Colombian will take a narrow one-shot lead into the second round on Friday with England Tyrrell Hatton and American Justin Thomas on seven under par in a share for second spot.
