World number two Jordan Spieth finds himself eight shots off the pace after the first round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

The 24-year-old American dropped two shots on each of the front and back nine, but had birdies on the 5th and 9th to finish with a two-over 75 and tied for 30th place.

Leading the pack in Kapalua is former PGA rookie of the year Australian Mark Leishmann who kicked off his round with a birdie - one of five on the front nine.

The pick of his shots was a birdie putt on the eighth, curled in from 16 feet on the par three. The 34-year-old ended six-under, one shot ahead of Brian Harman and Jhonattan Vegas who carded rounds of 68.

Dustin Johnson, the current world number one, went round in a four-under 69 and picked up an eagle with a 15-foot putt on the par-five fifth, while world number three Justin Thomas is tied for 12th after going round in two-under.
