PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico – Daniel Berger had five birdies in a seven-hole stretch on his final nine Thursday for a share of the lead in the OHL Classic.
Making his sixth PGA Tour start, Berger birdied Nos. 1, 3, 5, 6 and 7 and finished with two pars for a 6-under 65 on Mayakoba Resort's El Camaleon course.
Will MacKenzie, Robert Garrigus, Steve Wheatcroft, Hudson Swafford and Tony Finau also shot 65, and 50-year-old Davis Love III was a stroke back in a group that included Aaron Baddeley, Charley Hoffman and Pat Perez.
Defending champion Harris English closed with a three-putt bogey for a 67.
Carlos Ortiz topped the seven Mexican players in the field at 67. He won three times on the Web.com Tour last season.
The tournament is the final regular-season event of the year.
