McIlroy is 1-over par after a disappointing 73 at Redstone, with the Northern Irishman needing to win the tournament to move back above Tiger Woods.

American D.A. Points set the early pace, shooting a 64 to lead after round one on 8-under par, with Cameron Tringdale and John Rollins one shot back.

McIlroy, 21.00 to hit back and win in Texas, told Sky Sports after a poor start: "I kept in good spirits, I didn't get too down on myself.

English trio Brian Davis, Greg Owen and Lee Westwood all made solid starts, with Davis three shots off the lead and Owen and Westwood just a shot
