Greenville's Will McKenzie just missed a hole-in-one and had nine birdies as part of an 8-under 64 that gave him the lead after the first round of the Wyndham Championship. The former golf prodigy has returned to the game after an 11-year hiatus during which he spent time snowboarding.

McKenzie hit the flagstick on the 226 yard, eighth hole for one of the highlights to his round.

He has a one-shot lead over Lucas Glover, Steve Marino, Brian Davis and Jeff Overton.

Carl Pettersen and former British Open Champ Todd Hamilton are among a group of seven golfers who are two shots back.
