The Mexican Carlos Ortiz is off to a good start again in LIV Golf, he shares fourth place in the table with the American Dustin Johnson in the LIV Golf Invitational Bedminster that is played at the Trump National, where the lead is shared by the Swedish Henrik Stenson and the American Patrick Reed.
As will be remembered, Carlos Ortiz finished in second place in the second event of the millionaire Saudi League that was played in Portland and this Friday the man from Guadalajara showed again that he will be fighting for the first place in general next Sunday, in this contest that is played 54 holes and no cuts.
Now in Bedminster, Ortiz scored a tour of 67 strokes (-4), the same score was signed by Johnson. The Mexican pocketed five birdies for a bogey, with that he is four shots away from Henrik Stenson and Patrick Reed.
“I made some changes in the swing and I feel more comfortable,” said the man from Guadalajara, the best placed on the first day of activity.
The Swedish Stenson, who resigned from being Ryder Cup captain, debuted at LIV Golf and he did it as a pointer after signing 8 birdies for a bogey for a run of 64 (-7). The same card was delivered by the American Reed.
In third place was the 23-year-old Thai player Pachara Khongwatmai who made a round of 66(-5).
