South Korean leads Australian PGA at 9-under 62
COOLUM, Australia (AP) – South Korean Han Min-kyu shot a 9-under-par 62 to take a four-stroke lead after the first round of the Australian PGA on Thursday.
Han, who teed off at 6:25 a.m. in mild conditions and with little wind at the revamped Hyatt Regency resort course, had 11 birdies and two bogeys – on the first and 18th.
Ryan Haller was second after a 66, followed by five other Australians at 67: Stuart Appleby, Matthew Griffin, Scott Strange, Andrew Dodt and Henry Epstein. Adam Scott, last week’s Australian Open winner, was in a group at 68.
Defending champion Geoff Ogilvy and Robert Allenby each shot 70 and John Daly had a 71.
