Chacarera is one of three golfers tied at the top of the rankings after the first 18 holes in Thailand.

While many on the United States East Coast were fast asleep, LIV Golf kicked off the sixth event of its inaugural season.

The LIV Golf Bangkok event got off to a smooth start at Stonehill Golf Course as bombers and workhorses efficiently maneuvered around the relatively brand-new golf course.

Showcasing the depth of the field and the broad age range - which LIV was heavily criticized for at first - the youngest and one of the oldest members.

Eugenio Lopez-Chacarra appears to have finally achieved his professional breakthrough after shooting a bogey-free 7-under 65 in the first round in Bangkok.

A former No. 2 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, Chacarra represents the type of golfer LIV Golf hopes to attract moving forward.

Young, energetic, and relevant through previous amateur and collegiate play, the 22-year-old shares the lead with England journeyman Richard Bland.

CEO of LIV Greg Norman and Co. may secretly hope for a Chacarra triumph, but it won't come without stress.
