The defending champ got off to a great start and is looking for his first victory of the season. Scott, the PGA Tour's second-ranked golfer, shot a -9 in 2013, and was -3 through Thursday's first round. He'' in the second-to-last group to tee off, slated to go out at 1:48 p.m. with Jason Dufner and Matthew Fitzpatrick, neither of whom were in contention after Thursday.
