ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) Kevin Chappell holed a 45-yard bunker shot for eagle on his way to a 5-under 65 and a one-shot lead in the RSM Classic at Sea Island.

Chappell was trying to make sure his bunker shot reached the back of the green for a chance at birdie. It worked out perfectly at the par-5 15th on the Seaside Course.

Chappell was at 11-under 131 and one shot ahead of Kevin Kisner, who had a 67 at Seaside, and Freddie Jacobson, who had a 5-under 67 on the Plantation Course.

Dru Love, the 21-year-old son of Davis Love III, made his PGA Tour debut a short one. The junior at Alabama was 3 under until playing the final seven holes in 7 over. He shot 76 and missed the cut.
