Graham DeLaet fired a 5-under par 65 in the first round of the Honda Classic on Thursday morning in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. and is tied for second place.
With one great shot, Camilo Villegas turned a solid round into his lowest start in more than a year.
Villegas drilled a 3-wood into 8 feet on the par-5 18th hole and made the eagle putt for a 6-under 64.
That gave him a one-shot lead over Rickie Fowler, Branden Grace, Graham DeLaet and Robert Streb after the first round of the Honda Classic.
Defending champion Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods each had a 70 and walked off PGA National with different emotions. Woods was thrilled it wasn't worse. McIlroy was disappointed it wasn't better.
Villegas lost his card last year and is playing on sponsor exemptions.
DeLaet, a 2006 Boise State graduate, lives in Meridian. DeLaet's round included six birdies and a bogey. There is a field of five golfers at 4-under, including Dustin Johnson.
