Tommy Fleetwood outshone playing partner Tiger Woods to sit one shot off the lead after the opening round of the first FedEx Cup play-off event in New Jersey.

Englishman Fleetwood carded an opening four-under-par 67 in The Northern Trust at Ridgewood Country Club to lie one behind four men on five under, with Woods battling to a level-par 71.

Starting from the ninth due to the layout of the composite course, Fleetwood birdied the 13th, 14th, 16th and 17th to cover the back nine in 32 and picked up another shot on the fourth before dropping his only shot of the day following an errant drive on the seventh.
