Owen takes clubhouse lead
England's Greg Owen held the clubhouse lead during the first round of The McGladrey Classic in Georgia following a six-under-par 64.
Owen shot a flawless round, with birdies at the 11th, 15th, first, second, fourth and seventh after starting on the back nine, to get off to an ideal start on the Seaside Course at Sea Island.
New Zealand's Danny Lee was keeping pace with the 40-year-old as he was also six under through 15 holes.
Lee had also yet to drop a shot, with four birdies and an eagle at the par-five seventh taking him joint top of the leaderboard.
The two leaders were one shot ahead of United States trio Zach Johnson, David Toms and Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III.
Johnson had five birdies and the other two six birdies and a bogey to sit firmly in contention early on.
Another home favourite, Jim Furyk, was in the clubhouse on four under, while England's Gary Christian was one of six players already round in 67 to lie a shot further back, three off the early pace.
