Hideki Matsuyama got a warm reception in his first round since winning this year’s Masters but had a lackluster start with a five-birdie 68 that left him five shots off the lead and in 54th place at the AT&T Byron Nelson in Texas on Thursday.

Matsuyama carded five birdies and one bogey at TPC Craig Ranch, where hometown favorite Jordan Spieth holed a lengthy putt for an eagle on the final green to take a share of the first-round lead with fellow American J.J. Spaun at 9-under 63.
