Sam Saunders, grandson of golf great Arnold Palmer, got off to a strong start at Riviera Country Club on Thursday where he’s in search of a first US PGA Tour title. Saunders fired seven birdies in a seven-under-par 64 to seize a two-stroke clubhouse lead over US Open champion Dustin Johnson and 23-year-old J.T. Poston, with American Brett Stegmaier five-under through nine holes. World number one Jason Day, two-time major winner Jordan Spieth and world number five Hideki Matsuyama were among the afternoon starters chasing the target set by Saunders.
