Dustin Johnson’s bid to become world number one continued as he is in tied second place after the first round of the Genesis Open – despite a bee sting.

Johnson trails fellow American Sam Saunders by two shots for the lead, and can overtake Jason Day with victory if the Australian ties for third or worse.

Day is tied for 74th on even par after only 16 holes, as play was suspended because of poor light in California.
