|_______________||3 || Watney leads in Reno with bogey-free round |
Nick Watney had nine birdies and no bogeys to take a two-point lead after the first round of the US PGA Tour event in Reno. The tournament uses the Modified Stableford scoring system, awarding points for birdies and eagles and deducting points for bogeys and worse. Watney's effort gave him a total of 18 points and a good start toward a sixth career victory on the US tour, where he hasn't lifted a trophy since The Barclays in 2012. Australia's Geoff Ogilvy and New Zealand's Tim Wilkinson were tied for second on 16 points.

(Reuters) - American Nick Watney has never missed out on the FedExCup playoffs and he put himself in good position to maintain that record after charging into the first-round lead at the Barracuda Championship in Reno, Nevada on Thursday. Watney, who is on the cusp of qualifying for the PGA Tour's lucrative season finale, piled up nine birdies to total 18 points at Montreux Golf & Country Club in the only event on the U.S. circuit which uses the Modified Stableford scoring system. "I do like the course," California native Watney, who totalled only 23 putts, told Golf Channel after carding a flawless nine-under-par 63. I'll take it." Australian Geoff Ogilvy and New Zealand's Tim Wilkinson were joint second on 16 points with Scotland's Martin Laird and American Chad Campbell next best, on 13.
