MIAMI, March 20 (UPI) -- Geoff Ogilvy and Miguel Angel Jimenez shot 7-under-par 65 to share the lead after Thursday's first round of the World Golf Championships in Miami.

Ogilvy grabbed a piece of the lead while resisting a charge by three-time defending champion and world No. 1 Tiger Woods. He assumed the lead with five birdies in his first eight holes and Jiminez did the same thing on four of the last five.

"When you're hitting it well, you expect to shoot a 65," Jimenez said. "I've been hitting it good."

"I made a couple of mistakes out there, but overall I felt like I wasn't hitting the ball that poorly," Woods said. "I was hitting the ball in the right spots. I just couldn't really make any putts."

All but 24 of the event's 79 players shot at least even-par 72 or better in the first round and 32 players are within five shots of the lead, including Phil Mickelson, who like Woods, shot 5-under 67.
