World number one Jordan Spieth sunk a hole-in-one on the par-three second, but finished a shot behind the leaders.

The US Open and Masters champion, who used a six-iron from 172 yards for his ace, also carded a bogey-free round.

The Hero World Challenge, which is taking place at Albany in the Bahamas, features 18 of the top-ranked golfers in the world.
