Rollins ends on high note, shoots 63

Watch John Rollins roll in a birdie putt at the 18th hole Thursday.

FORT WORTH, Texas -- John Rollins rolled in his longest putt of the day, a birdie putt just inside 22 feet, to cap off a 7-under 63 in Thursday's first round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

That puts him just one stroke off the lead held by Ryan Palmer, who shot 62 from a morning tee time. Both players are members at Colonial.

Rollins produced the low round of any player teeing off in the afternoon.

The three-time TOUR winner is making his 11th start in this event but has rarely experienced much success at Colonial. He's missed the cut seven times and his best finish is a tie for 24th in 2007.

The 63 is his best round at Colonial by four strokes.
