Allenby leads CIMB after first round

SELANGOR, Malaysia -- Australia's Robert Allenby shot an 8-under 63 to take a one-stroke lead over Venezuela's Jhonattan Vegas after the first round of the CIMB Asia Pacific Classic Malaysia, the second-year event sanctioned by the PGA TOUR and Asian Tour.

Allenby, a Captain’s Pick on the International team for next month’s Presidents Cup in Australia, birdied four of the first six holes and three of the last four in his bogey-free round at The Mines Resort and Golf Club.

"I got away with a nice par on the 18th. I made lots of nice putts and hit the ball really well all day," Allenby said. "I had just one wayward tee shot at the last, but I made a good par to save at the last. Overall, I'm happy with my golf. I've been playing well for a while, but haven't really put the scores on the board."

Vegas birdied the final four holes.

"I had a really good round and hit the ball well," said Vegas, who won on the PGA TOUR earlier this year in his rookie season. "I felt like I hit a lot of good putts as well. Hopefully, I can keep the momentum going for the next three days."
