Fast finish puts Van Pelt up by two at Mayakoba Classic in Mexico

2/27/2009

Bo Van Pelt birdied seven of his last nine holes for a 7-under 63 and the first-round lead at the Mayakoba Golf Classic on Thursday

He started the run with four straight birdies, then birdied three of the final four holes, including about a 2-foot putt to close the round in style.

Chris Riley and Jarrod Lyle opened with 65s. Rookie Scott Piercy, who has three top-25 finishes in four starts this year, was in a group at 66.

Defending champion Brian Gay was tied for 20th at 68. David Toms -- the world's 65th-ranked player, leaving him one spot from making the WGC-Accenture Match Play field -- shot a 70.
