Last update: 11/10/2018

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 11 (Bernama) -- Debutant Bronson Burgoon shot a solid nine-under-par 63 to take the opening lead of the 2018 CIMB Classic golf tournament held at the TPC Kuala Lumpur in Bukit Kiara here, today.

"...shooting a nine under is a good start. Obviously there are 54 more holes and that's what it is. It's a good start," quipped the 31-year-old Burgoon, who arrived here on Tuesday.

"I drove it well and putted pretty good, so it was kind of boring golf, but that's always a good thing. I chipped in for an eagle out of the bunker on my ninth hole, which gave me a boost, then I kept going," he added.

Starting from the 10th tee-box of the West Course, Burgoon started off consistently but dropped a bogey at the par-four 13th hole but recovered it with three straight birdies and an eagle on the par-five 18th hole.

He continued his fine form and shot five birdies in his second-nine for today with a score of 63.....
