New York: A bogey-ridden front nine marred Arjun Atwal's opening day show and he was joined by Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra at tied 68th after identical rounds of one-over 72 in the Barclays Classic here.

On a soggy Westchester Country Club, Atwal started on his back nine and was greeted with a bogey on the 10th. He dropped a shot each on the 12th, 14th and 17th before eventually managing to salvage himself with three birdies.

Australian Adam Scott posted a six-under 65 to grab a one-stroke lead. UNI
