WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. – Tommy Gainey and Johnson Wagner each shot 8-under 62s Thursday to share the lead among early finishers in the first round of the Greenbrier Classic.
Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and defending champion Ted Potter Jr. are among those with afternoon tee times on the Old White TPC course.
Players were able to lift, clean and place their balls after rain fell prior to the start of play.
Gainey and Wagner played bogey-free rounds. Wagner was 8 under after 12 holes but finished with six straight pars.
Both could use a good week. Wagner doesn't have a top 10 finish this year. Gainey's best showing is sixth, but like Wagner has missed more cuts than he's made.
Among other early finishers, Webb Simpson and Jin Park each shot 64.
