Palm Harbor, USA: Australian Greg Chalmers and New Zealand's Danny Lee, each seeking his first US PGA title, fired three-under-par 68s Thursday to stand among four sharing the first-round lead at the Valspar Championship.
Americans Matt Every and Pat Perez joined them atop the leaderboard in the USD 5.7 million event at the Innisbrook resort's Copperhead course.
"I gained a lot of confidence after last week playing with the finish in Puerto Rico," Lee said."It really helped me a lot with that confidence stuff, and I'm hitting it really well right now. My ball striking is the best it's ever been, especially with the putting."
