After last week's sojourn to Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics, the PGA Tour returned to the United States for the Wyndham Championship on Thursday with Rafael Cabrera-Bello and Kevin Na tied for the lead at seven under par. 

Cabrera-Bello picked up right where he left off last week. The 32-year-old tied for fifth at the Olympics after not finishing inside the top 10 at a PGA Tour event since April at the Shell Houston Open. 

Na is also keeping his momentum going after shooting a 64 in the final round at last week's John Deere Classic. 

Here is the full leaderboard after the first round at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina:



Cabrera-Bello and Na had similar paths to their scores of 63. Both players shot 32 on the front nine and 31 on the back nine. 

The only difference in their rounds was that Cabrera-Bello hit an eagle on the par-five fifth hole.

He was also a wizard with his putter, gaining 6.06 strokes. It helped offset his 64.3 percent driving accuracy and 72.2 greens in regulation percentage.  

Na said after his round ended that the changes to the Sedgefield Country Club actually made it more difficult compared to his last appearance at the course. 

"The last time I played out here, (the greens were) bentgrass, and I shot that 61 on Saturday," Na said, per Jeff Mills of the Greensboro News and Record. "...The golf course has changed (to bermuda greens). It's a lot more difficult. I played unbelievably well. I just think it's a great course for me. I'm glad I'm back."

The 32-year-old Na has shot well in final rounds lately, carding a 66 at the PGA Championship and a 64 last week. If he is starting to harness that closing ability into the first three rounds, then this will be his second career PGA Tour win and first since 2011.
