GREENSBORO, N.C., Oct. 5 (UPI) --
Brent Geiberger, John Rollins
and Nick Watney
shot 8-under 64 Thursday to share the first-round lead at the PGA's Chrysler Classic of Greensboro, N.C.
The one negative in Rollins' round was a bogey at the 17th hole. That kept him from the outright lead heading in to Friday's second round.
"I knew I had a good round going so I just stepped up and tried to hit a good tee shot on 18," said Rollins, who won the BC Open in July, but has struggled with his putter for most of the year.
James Driscoll, Robert Gamez, Charley Hoffman, Tag Ridings, John Senden and Mike Sposa are tied for fourth at 6-under 66.
Defending champion K.J. Choi opened with a 5-under 67, good for a tie for 10th place.
