DANIEL ISLAND, S.C. -- South Carolina native Mark Anderson shot a 6-under par 66 to take the first-round lead at the Nationwide Tour Championship at Daniel Island.
Anderson struggled to start the tournament Thursday, needing tough putts to save par on five of his first seven holes. But he birdied six of his next seven holes, then had a bogey on No. 16 and a birdie on the final hole.
This is the final tournament on the Nationwide schedule, and the top 25 players on the money list at the finish will win PGA Tour cards for 2012.
