TUCSON, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Mark Wilson shot 8-under-par 64 on Thursday to take the opening-round lead at the Chrysler Classic of Tucson, Ariz.
Wilson, a journeyman, toiled on a number of other tours, such as the Australian, before getting his PGA Tour card in 2002.
Steven Bowditch withdrew after a 10-over 82. Sixteen golfers, including Champions Tour member Don Pooley, shot even-par 72.
Only 28 players failed to shoot par or better.
