Joining Day at one under is fellow former world No.1 Rory McIlroy.

He made five birdies and an eagle at the par-five fifth hole when he hit his second shot to tap-in range, but it could have been so much better had it not been for one errant drive.

"I'm feeling a little dizzy and exhausted".

Although first-timers typically don't perform well on the severely undulating slopes at the 7,500-yard Kapalua course, Tway carded seven birdies and no bogeys during a seven-under-par 66.

"With all the technical work I've done in the off-season it's a real contrast to come out here and completely forget about the swing and just hit the shot".

The Tournament of Champions is an elite $US6.5 million ($A9.3 million) event for winners on the PGA Tour from the previous year and features no 36-hole cut.

"I feel like I maximized my potential on that", DeChambeau said, and he pointed to the 16th as an example. You just want to pick the right club.
