Bud Cauley birdied four of the final five holes at Harbour Town to post a bogey-free 8-under 63, and a two-shot lead after round one of the RBC Heritage.
Cauley’s 63 was two short of the tournament record (61), held by David Frost and Troy Merritt.
Two back of Cauley, and tied for second at 6-under, is the threesome of Luke Donald, Graham DeLaet and Sam Saunders, who honored his grandfather, Arnold Palmer, at the opening ceremonies.
Tied for fifth, at 5-under-par, is the trio of recent Shell winner Russell Henley, former U.S. Open winner Webb Simpson, and Ian Poulter.
