       Jason Kokrak made a perfectly-judged hole-in-one at the 15th hole during the third round of the Valspar Champio

"Forty years old, they say things start breaking down a little bit, but hopefully this is pretty short-term and now I can go on for a few more years and enjoy some good golf", said Donald who topped the rankings for 56 weeks in 2011-12. And these are real tough golf courses and it's better for me. "But, all in all, it was a good score and I felt like the conditions; they were tricky".

Two PGA professionals who have yet to win on tour are sitting at the top of the leaderboard after the first round of the Valspar Championship.

Russell Knox, Kevin Kisner and Luke Donald are tied for third at four under par and American Keegan Bradley is part of a five-player group at three under 68, two strokes back of the leaders.

Top-ranked Dustin Johnson is tied for 11th after opening with a 69, defending champion Paul Casey shot 70 and is tied for 29th, and 10th-ranked Jon Rahm of Spain posted a 71 and is tied for 46th.

Straka and Dahmen also played in the morning on a day when almost all the best scores were posted early, before a breeze and firm conditions created a stern afternoon test.

Casey carded an eagle, four birdies and a solitary bogey in a second round of 66 on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort to share the halfway with American Austin Cook on six under par.

American Dahmen already had a top 10 finish this season when he tied for ninth at the Farmers two months ago.

Casey, who came second in February at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for his best finish of the 2018-19 season, is a two-time PGA Tour victor and has captured 13 events on the European Tour and two on the Asian Tour. Scotsman Knox had an erratic round with five birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey but the undoubted highlight was an albatross on the 11th where he holed out from 275 yards.

"It's a very quick way to go from 2-over to 1-under, " Knox said.

Casey was joined in the clubhouse lead by Cook, who handed in a five-birdie 67, while Donald got to three under for the day with his fifth birdie at the fifth - his 14th - before he missed a short putt for par at six and then three-putted the eighth green from over 50 feet to drop back to five under for the tournament.

In the third round of the 2019 Valspar Championship, Paul Casey carded a 3-under 68 to get to 9-under for the tournament and take a one-stroke lead over the field into Sunday.

Early tee times didn't help Reed, who had a 77, or Day at 74.
