Quick hits from Thursday at Greenbrier Classic

Top quote – Davis Love III

“When I did screw up, I chipped in,” Love told the Golf Channel after an opening-round 63.

Best round – Sebastian Munoz (61)

Munoz grabbed the first-round lead, making 10 birdies and just one bogey for a 9-under-par 61. The 24-year-old has now shot four straight opening rounds in the 60s, but his best finish in that span was a tie for 50th at the AT&T Byron Nelson.
