Jhonattan Vegas had seven birdies, including three in a row at one point, and just one bogey on his way to a 65 and the early lead in the opening round at CordeValle.
This marks the second straight week that Vegas has gotten off to a good start. Last week in Las Vegas, he opened with a pair of 68s before a final-round 73 and a tie for 46th.
Vegas entered this week 112th on the money list, though he is exempt through the 2013 season for his win at last year’s Bob Hope Classic.
