The 34-year-old from Las Palmas, who teed off on the 10th, nearly capped a superb performance with an ace at the par-three second, drilling his tee-shot to within a foot of the pin. Day made a bogey at his first hole, a double at the fourth, a birdie at the fifth and withdrew after hitting his second shot in the water on the par-5 16th hole, his seventh of the day as he started on the back nine.

He got a big lift at the 15th hole when he sank a monster birdie putt from 33 feet.

Cabrera-Bello - a three-time European Tour victor but seeking his maiden PGA Tour crown - started his day with birdies on four of his first six holes to jump out to an early lead.

"There's a lot of challenging shots", Cabrera Bello said.

"I really didn't know what to expect", he told reporters.

"I think the governing bodies are a very easy target right now and it's very easy for people to jump on the bandwagon and criticise, but all these entities in golf are not trying to do anything bad for the game, they're trying to help the game in some way", McIlroy added. "To win an event that has the name of one of the greatest players on earth would be really special, but it's only Thursday".
