"But I got here and looked out past the clubhouse and thought, 'This is going to be really good'".

Power carded six birdies and dropped just one shot, the par-3 second hole, to leave himself well positioned on the leaderboard.

Australian Marc Leishman, buoyed by a pair of eagles, fired a career-low 61 for a three-shot lead after the first round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Tournament on Thursday, while hometown favorite Jordan Spieth failed to make a move.

"I didn't feel I was hitting the ball with much confidence", she said.

Leishman had previously posted four scores of 62, including his opening round in last year's BMW Championship which he went on to win by five shots.

The world No 16 didn't miss a fairway for just the third time during his career. "The fairways are generous, but if you're off them, you're in trouble", Leishman said.

It was largely a good day for a strong Australian contingent, with Cameron Percy (-4), Adam Scott (-4), Matt Jones (-4), Geoff Ogilvy (-2), Robert Allenby (-1) and Rod Pampling (-1) all under par.

The Byron Nelson is being staged at its new home - Trinity Forest - for the first time after bidding farewell to the Four Seasons Resort and Club. Randolph finished his day tied for 120th at 1 over; Marc Leishman is in 1st at 10 under; Jimmy Walker and J.J. Spaun are tied for 2nd at 7 under; and Tyler Duncan, Peter Uihlein, Ethan Tracy, Jonathan Byrd, Keith Mitchell, Aaron Wise, Sam Saunders, and Abraham Ancer are tied for 4th at 6 under. "That wasn't a lower score, but it was a better round under the circumstances", he said.

"I was hitting the right side of the fairways (with) good iron play and I obviously had a hot putter as well".

Leishman was in a tie for 63rd at last week's Players Championship and he was in contention after two rounds of last month's Masters Tournament before finishing ninth, seven shots behind the victor Patrick Reed.
