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.
