Round 1 in the books

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- The first round of play has concluded at Sea Island with Webb Simpson and Zack Miller tied atop the leaderbaord at 7 under. Simpson, looking to overtake Luke Donald atop the PGA TOUR money list, took the lead after the morning wave. Miller, a 2010 q-school graduate and TOUR rookie, caught him after 14 holes and pared his final four to claim a share of the overnight lead. The lead looked as though it would be divided three ways until the waining moments of the round. Martin Piller, playing the day’s next-to-last group, suffered a bogey on the 18th hole to drop to 6 under, one off the pace. Piller joins Scott McCarron and Billy Horschel on that number. At day’s end, 77 of the 132 players in the field were under par. Graeme McDowell, Matt Kuchar, Bo Van Pelt and defending champion Heath Slocum are among the players at even.
