PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- Former PGA Championship winner David Toms shot a 5-under-par 66 Thursday to share the lead after one round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

Mark Hensby, Kyle Stanley and Andres Gonzales were tied at the top with Toms, who is no longer ranked among the top 64 players in the world and thus was ineligible for this week's WGC Match Play Championship.

Toms won the match play event six years ago.

Defending champion Cameron Beckman was tied for fifth at 66 along with Briny Baird, Kent Jones, Chris Tidland, Alexandre Rocha and Sunghoon Kang.

Jhonattan Vegas, who won earlier this year at the Bob Hope Classic, shot a 75 and was in a tie for 97th place.

John Daly had a 74 at the El Camaleon Golf Club.
