The AT&T Byron Nelson switched from TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas to the new Trinity Forest Golf Club this year and while the course was new to Leishman, his impressive form at the tournament continued.

The 34-year-old Victorian, a three-time victor on the PGA Tour, started with an eagle on the par-5 first hole and never looked back, claiming another eagle at the 14th to go with six birdies.

Graeme McDowell, among the late starters, lies a shot behind Power after a bogey on the 18th saw him finish with a 67.

"I didn't feel I was hitting the ball with much confidence", she said.

"But with the greens as penalising as they are if you hit a bad shot, you've got to be so "on".

So I had to take about four-and-a-half, five weeks off, no swinging.

"That's the key around here", he said.

Sam Saunders, Aaron Wise, Keith Mitchell, Abraham Ancer, Jonathan Byrd, Ethan Tracy, Peter Uihlein and Tyler Duncan are a stroke further back.

Billy Horschel, who won the event previous year, shares 44th place at three under.

Bill Gates talks about his awkward meetings with Donald Trump
He described the first sentence Trump said to him when he walked into their meeting. " Melinda [Gates] didn't like that too much". Maybe Donald Trump isn't actually the " stable genius " he claims to be, as he certainly isn't the latter.

Conners is tied for 57th along with countryman Nick Taylor.

Leishman could not have asked for a better start to his round as his approach from 237 yards at the par-five first hole stopped three feet from the cup, allowing him a tap-in eagle that set the stage for a memorable day. "Wish I got more out of it, honestly". "A big week for me, especially what's been going on, and I feel a lot better now".

Welshman Stuart Manley leads the race to make the top 64 who will contest the nine-hole matchplay knockout series after he shot a seven-under 64 at Valle Romano Golf to lead by a shot.

Jessica Korda, Azahara Munoz, In Gee Chun and Jaye Marie Green also shot 65.

Play resumes this morning.

The World No.16 didn't miss a fairway for just the third time during his career. She then almost holed her second shot on the par-five 15th after hitting "an OK 3-wood" that left her with a short eagle putt, and also birdied the par-four 16th.

The Warrnambool ace said he was happy with his ability to stay in the moment, not letting thoughts of a potential 59 cloud his judgement, even when caddie and great mate Matt Kelly brought it up playing the 18th. "I hit some good shots".

Munoz earned her only tour win in 2012 and settled in after starting with a bogey. "Lucky enough, I had some short birdie putts, short eagle putt, and that helps". Green had seven birdies and bogeyed No. 18.
