Carlsson leads BMW PGA, Stenson 2 behind
VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) Johan Carlsson shot a 6-under 66 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in the BMW PGA Championship, the European Tour's flagship event at Wentworth Club's revamped West Course.
The 30-year-old Swede had eight birdies and two bogeys.
"Obviously, this week is a big week and I've always had that goal in mind that this is going to be a tournament to get it around no matter what," Carlsson said. "Play with what you have and that's what I did. I didn't try to hit any super fancy shots. I just played with what I had and I think that was the key to success."
