AVONDALE, La., April 22 (UPI) -- Jason Bohn barely missed equaling the course record Thursday and took the lead after one round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Bohn, a one-time winner on the PGA Tour, shot a 65 at the TPC-Louisiana course and was two shots in front of John Senden, Jeff Overton, Greg Owen, Jason Dufner and 2006 champion Chris Couch.
David Duval, playing for the first time since missing the cut at the Masters, was tied for seventh at 68 with K.J. Choi, Charles Howell III, Troy Merritt and Kevin Sutherland.
There were 37 players within five shots off the lead.
Bohn put his second shot on the par-5 18th into the water and suffered a bogey to miss out on tying the course record. He hit 15-of-18 greens and birdied four out of five holes beginning at the ninth.
"I think the key is you can miss the fairway by a couple of yards," Bohn said. "There's not a lot of rough."
Bohn's only victory came at the 2005 B.C. Open.
