NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) Paul Casey is off to a good start in his final chance this year to get a victory.

Casey made birdie on the 18th hole at Albany Golf Club on Thursday for a 6-under 66 and a share of the first-round lead with Jimmy Walker and Zach Johnson in the Hero World Challenge.

Casey is among five players in the 18-man field who has yet to win this year.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth made a hole-in-one on his second hole and was in the large group at 67 that included Bubba Watson and Adam Scott, who lives at Albany.

Johnson was penalized on his third hole for marking his ball off the green. The penalty later was rescinded because it was not clear where the putting surface ended on several greens.
