Bronson Myers of Columbia, S.C. finished the first round of the 69th Carolinas Junior Boys' Championship as the leader with a four-under-par, 68. Myers sits one stroke ahead of Zach Roberts of Holly Springs, N.C. and Drayton Stewart of Charleston, S.C.

Myers racked up five birdies and just one bogey on the day and credited his putting as the big contributor.

"I made a lot of putts from long range," said Myers, "I've honestly never really made that many putts."

Two of Myers' birdies came on No. 8 and No. 9, the holes he finished on after starting his round off No. 10, and he said that finish gave him some confidence heading into tomorrow's round.

"It gives me a lot of momentum, but I've definitely still got to play well and keep it strong," Myers said.

The rising high school senior said he knows it's a strong field, and even admitted he's, "still worried."

The tournament is conducted as 54 holes of stroke play. After 36 holes, the field will be cut to the low 70 scores and ties.
