World number one Jordan Spieth is in danger of missing the cut after a disappointing opening round at the Valspar Championship.
Spieth made five bogeys in his first seven holes and never recovered, shooting a five-over 76 to leave him nine shots off the lead held by Charles Howell III, Keegan Bradley and Ken Duke.
"I just didn't hit enough greens," Spieth said.
"I had the opportunities on a few holes today and actually there was a lot of holes where I thought if I hit great shots posing and it's 10, 15 yards off on the distance based on the gust of the wind.
"It was a very tough day. I got off to a poor start and I was behind the eight-ball with gusty wind on a tough golf course."
Howell carded a bogey-free 67, picking up shots at the second and eighth, 11th and 14th to end the day in a share of the lead.
"I was impressed I got away with no bogeys," Howell said. "It was nice to get off to a good start here on a place like this.
"I'm not sure what the rest of the week will hold, but to actually play a nice round on a tough golf course is good for my confidence."
Bradley made five birdies during his opening round but a bogey on the sixth, his 15th of the day, meant he dropped back to four-under, while Duke also carded a flawless opening round.
Padraig Harrington and Graeme McDowell are three-over, three clear of European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke.
