Vijay Singh didn't see this coming, but the 49-year-old leads after the first round of The Greenbrier Classic. Singh shot 7-under 63 to lead by a shot over Jeff Maggert, a year younger than him, Jonathan Byrd and Martin Flores.
'Gosh, I don't know where that came from,' Singh said of his low round of the season. 'I've been playing pretty good golf for a while but just never got any scoring going. But today seemed I hit it close and drove the ball really well, hit a lot of greens and made some nice putts.'
Singh birdied six of his last eight holes, including the final four in a row, to grab the lead.
Tiger Woods struggled with the speed of the greens at the Old White TPC, shooting 1-over 71 to trail by eight shots. He shot the same score in relationship to par last week to start the AT&T National. He trailed by five after Day 1, eventually winning by two shots. Phil Mickelson also carded 71.
