Scott, Oosthuizen share lead at HSBC Champions
SHENZHEN, China (AP) - Louis Oosthuizen and Adam Scott both shot a seven-under 65 on Thursday to share a one-shot lead after the opening round of the HSBC Champions.
Oosthuizen, the 2010 British Open winner, played a bogey-free round with seven birdies, while Scott finished his round with two birdies and an eagle on the par-five ninth hole.
Two-time HSBC Champions winner Phil Mickelson was in a tie for third one shot back, along with Bubba Watson, Peter Hanson and Shane Lowry.
Hanson has been one of the top golfers on the European Tour this fall, capturing the KLM Open in the Netherlands in September and the BMW Masters in Shanghai last weekend for the biggest victory of his career.
