Athens, GA (Sports Network) - Kent Jones fired an eight-under 63 on Thursday to take the lead after one round of the Stadion Classic at UGA.
Jones didn't have a bogey during his round, and established the course record at the University of Georgia Golf Club. He holds a two-stroke lead over two- time U.S. Open winner Lee Janzen, David Skinns and Brandon Brown -- all of whom carded 65s.
The 45-year-old Jones has twice won on the Nationwide Tour, but both of those victories came in 2000. Since then, Jones played on the PGA Tour but never finished better than a tie for fifth.
Luke List, last weekend's winner at the South Georgia Classic, shot a five- under 66 and shares fifth place with four other players.
