Reed had started strong with birdies on the first two holes but a bogey on the par-three eighth set him back before he carded four birdies on the back nine to sign for a 65.
Cantlay had used a late charge to set the clubhouse lead, with birdies on five of the last six holes in a blemish-free round.
Host Tiger Woods struggled as he recorded a first round of 73.
Birdies on the sixth and seventh holes cancelled out bogeys on the second and fifth, but it all went wrong on the par-three 12th as he missed the fairway and then got caught in a water hazard on his way to a triple-bogey.
