Former ASU Jaguar Reed leads Humana Challenge

Posted: Updated:
LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) – Former Augusta State golfer Patrick Reed went low in perfect scoring and weather conditions Thursday at the Humana Challenge. He wasn't alone.

Reed ran off five straight birdies in the middle of his round on PGA West's Arnold Palmer Private Course and finished with a bogey-free 9-under 63.

Ryan Palmer, Justin Hicks, Daniel Summerhays and Charley Hoffman shot 64. Palmer played the Palmer course, Hicks and Summerhays opened on the Jack Nicklaus Private Course, and Hoffman, the 2007 winner, was at La Quinta Country Club.

Reed, the Wyndham Championship winner in August, started on the back nine and birdied Nos. 16-18 and 1-2 to get to 7-under. He added birdies on Nos. 6 and 7.

Reed’s wife Justine is not caddying for him this season. She is pregnant with the couple’s first child and due in late May. Her brother is serving as Patrick’s caddy in her absence.

Aiken’s Kevin Kisner is tied for 13th after an opening round 66.
