Matthew Wolff and Talor Gooch are tied for the lead of the LIV Boston event after day 1 of the competition at The International which saw several new faces debut for the league.

Matthew Wolff also made history for LIV in Boston by scoring the first ever hole-in-one for the rebel league. He made his ace on the 178-yard second hole, his fifth of the round. The ball took one hop and disappeared into the cup for the first ace in the fourth LIV Golf Invitational series.

He also had another eagle on the par-5 12th hole to go along with six birdies to offset three bogeys which were enough for him to share the lead with Talor Gooch who also finished at 7-under courtesy of solid play.

Gooch was one of the players whose case against the PGA Tour was dismissed.

The pair share a one-shot lead over two newcomers.

British Open champion Cameron Smith and Joaquin Niemann of Chile, who signed with Greg Norman’s league after finishing the PGA Tour season at the Tour Championship are tied for the third one shot back of the leader with 64.

The rest of the debutants included Anirban Lahiri (66) T5, Harold Varner III (67) T10, Marc Leishman (70) T31 and Cameron Tringale (71) T37.

Only 12 players from the 48-man field failed to post par or better at The International, a list that included Phil Mickelson who finished with a 4-over 74.
