Barnes Leads Zurich Classic

Zurich Classic of New Orleans - Round One

Ricky Barnes went on a tear birdieing six of the last eight holes to take a one-stroke lead at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He finished the opening round with an eagle, seven birdies and a bogey for an 8-under 64.

Boo Weekley and Lucas Glover finished one stroke back while D.A. Points and Morgan Hoffmann both shot 66.

Rickie Fowler and Ernie Els are tied with eight other players at 5-under-par.

Story of the day belongs to 14-year-old amateur, Guan Tianlang from China, who finished even-par for the day besting professionals, Bubba Watson (73), Camilo Villegas (73), Charles Howell III (73), Ben Crane (+2), and KJ Choi (+3).

Round two kicks off tonight (or morning if you’re in the states). Checkout the pairings here:
