Alker shoots low in Georgia first round

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 17/11/2016

New Zealand's Steven Alker has returned to form on the PGA Tour, carding a flawless six-under 64 at a tournament in Sea Island, Georgia.

Alker shares eighth place, three strokes behind Canadian Mackenzie Hughes, who also played on the Seaside course, one of two being used for the RSM Classic.

The 45-year-old didn't drop a shot and split his six birdies evenly between the front and back nines.

Alker's return to the Tour this season began with two encouraging top-35 finishes but he missed the cut on his two subsequent starts.

Compatriot Tim Wilkinson also began well, shooting a five-under 67 on the Plantation course.
