A fun first day of the 2022 Zurich Classic has resulted in an interesting leaderboard. With 10 of the top 20 golfers in the world in this field, it took until late in Round 1 until one of the top-ranked duos -- Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele -- started to pepper the very top of the board at TPC Louisiana.

The big-time Ryder Cup duo leads by one after Round 1 and has now become a heavier favorite than ever to take a title that eluded them last year but that seems like a perfect fit for the two of them to win.

Thursday was one of two four-ball sessions so scoring dipped into the low 60s (and lower) with Friday's alternate-shot format sure to inflate those scores ahead of the weekend.

Let's take a look at how Cantlay and Schauffele put their record-setting round together, who else is in contention and what else happened further down the board on Thursday in one of the most interesting tournaments the PGA Tour plays throughout the year.

Xander Schauffele/Patrick Cantlay (-13): The favorites were who we thought they were. Cantlay and Schauffele came in as the co-favorites with Collin Morikawa and Viktor Hovland and then went out and dropped a 13-under 59 on the field.

After going out in 29, their round stalled a bit halfway through the second nine before they birdied the last three in a row for the magic number.

While it's not completely unusual for a best-ball team (especially one that has both players ranked in the top 12 in the world) to crack 60, it's still special when it happens and especially so since it's never taken place at this event. 

"It counts for me," said Schauffele of the 59 which set a new Zurich Classic scoring record. "I haven't done it before. I don't think Pat has either. I'll count it in my book."
