PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., March 9 (UPI) -- David Toms
and three other players shot 5-under-par 67 Thursday to share the lead in the first round of The Honda Classic at Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
The round was suspended because of darkness at the end of the day.
"I started off kind of slow, but came back and ended up making a lot of birdies," Toms said. "I putted well and capitalized every time I hit a good shot."
Also at 67 are Match Play champion Geoff Ogilvy, Ryuji Imada and Mathias Gronberg. Billy Mayfair, Brian Gay, Jeff Gove and Jason Schultz are one stroke further back at 4-under 68.
14 players are within three strokes of the lead, including John Cook (69), Davis Love III (70), and Stephen Ames (70).
