Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Stephen Carney shot a 9-under 63 on Thursday at Loyalist Golf and Country Club to take the first round lead at The Great Waterway Classic, the ninth event of the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada season.
The 25-year old carded nine birdies and an eagle to lead by one over Taiwan’s C.T. Pan, Thornhill, Ontario’s Ben Silverman, Petoski, Michigan’s Joey Garber and West Des Moines, Iowa’s Nate McCoy through one round at Loyalist.
“I putted great, and I probably hit every green,” said Carney, who wasn’t satisfied despite his successful opening round. “I'm going to keep working; 9-under's not going to win the tournament. You have to shoot pretty low, obviously, because there are so many great players and they’re going to go low.”
