The two men each turned over a 64 (-7) to settle on top. The two stalled eight birdies against a bogey during this first day of activities, presented on the airwaves of TVA Sports 2.
It is therefore a front door entry for Stenson, who is in his first tournament on this circuit, he who recently announced his decision, at the same time losing his title of captain of the European team for the Ryder Cup.
The two men will start the second round with a lead of two shots over their closest pursuer, Thailand's Phachara Khongwatmai.
Collectively, the 4 Aces, including Reed, with Dustin Johnson as captain, sit at the top of the standings, with a score of -11. Johnson is also tied for fourth with a round of 67 (-4). The Majesticks, Stenson's team, are just behind, at -10.
