RENO, Nev., Aug. 4 (UPI) -- Nick O'Hern, in his seventh year on the PGA Tour and still looking for his first win, grabbed the lead Thursday after one round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.
O'Hern shot a bogey-free, 7-under 65 at the Montreux Golf & Country Club for a one-shot advantage over Chris Riley. O'Hern is best remembered for a pair of second-round victories over Tiger Woods at the World Match Play Championship.
Blake Adams, Will MacKenzie and Briny Baird shared third place at 67 while those at 68 included Steve Flesh, Shaun Micheel, Jay Williamson, Matt Jones, Robert Garrigus, Ben Martin and Rod Pampling.
Micheel, who captured the 2003 PGA, is one of 10 major championship winners in the field. Most of the world's top players are competing this week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
Jose Maria Olazabal, two-time Masters winner and the co-holder of the course record at the site of the Bridgestone tournament, shot a 72 Thursday and was tied for 47th place.
