Brian Stuard, a two-time US PGA runner-up still seeking his first title, fired a six-under-par 66 Thursday to seize a one-stroke lead after 18 holes at the Puerto Rico Open.
Stuard, an American who was second at the 2010 and 2013 Mayakoba Classic in Mexico, began off the 10th tee and fired seven birdies against a lone bogey on day one of the $3.5 million event.
"The wind is blowing pretty good out there, so I hit some good shots. I kept it in play nice off the tee, didn't get in much trouble, and only made the one bogey," said Stuard.
