Defending FedEx Cup champion Cantlay finished with a tie for the lead behind great shots, including an eagle on the sixth.
Hodges and Cantlay had very similar first rounds with each shooting eight birdies and one eagle on the day. Neither had a bogey and both played great golf from start to finish.
While Hodges did his damage on the front nine, shooting a seven under par with that eagle, Cantlay did his work on the back nine.
Sitting at eight under par after one round are K.H. Lee and Cameron Young. Lee knocked home the most birdies on the day with 10, but his two bogeys left him in a tie for second place.
Eight more golfers are sitting at seven under par entering Friday, just three strokes off the lead.
World No. 1 Jon Rahm (-6) is tied with 10 other golfers at four strokes off the lead. Rahm is setting up for a big Friday after six birdies and zero bogeys on Thursday. He could explode today to vault up the leaderboard.
