LAKE WORTH, Fla. - Sunny Kim from Queens, NY overcame a lone bogey on #13 with an eagle and seven birides to open with a 8-under par 64 on the South course at Fountains Country Club. Kim has 66 MLGT victories and leads the career money list but has not claimed this trophy over the years.

Tied for 2nd after day one at 66 are Alan Wagner from Miami, FL and Chris Wiatr from Woodbury, CT. Both men got off to mediocre starts but finished strong to get themselves into the final pairing Thursday.

All of the holes were halved on day one of the skins game. MLGT policy states that in that case the holes with the lowest number of ties will split the skins pot. Two players made eagle on the 15th hole and all other holes had three of more ties so Kristian Caparros and Chris Wiatr each won $300 for the skin.

The 56 player starting field will be cut to the lowest 19 and ties after day two. There are 21 players at -1 or better after the opening round.
