HONG KONG -- David Higgins shot a 6-under 64 Thursday to lead the Hong Kong Open by one shot after the first round.

Higgins, who lost his European Tour card at the end of last season, was one stroke ahead of Andrea Pavan.

Seven others, including Seve Benson, Andrew Dodt and Sujjan Singh, were at 4 under.

Defending champion Miguel Jimenez (70) three-putted for a bogey at the last hole to finish six shots behind Higgins.
