Danny Lee got off to a smoking-hot start at the Mayakoba Classic, firing a 9-under 62 in Round 1 to grab an early one-shot lead in Mexico.
Lee was out early Friday morning and took advantage of the soft conditions at El Camaleon Golf Club after rain completely washed out first-round play Thursday. The New Zealander carded five birdies and an eagle to make the turn at 29. He played the back nine at 2-under par to get in the clubhouse at 62.
The 29-year-old finished second to Matt Kuchar in last year's event, during which he shot 65 in the final round. Lee is looking for his second PGA Tour title.
