FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Kevin Na chipped in from the rough more than 90 feet away for an incredible birdie to close out an 8-under 62 and take the first-round lead in the Fort Worth Invitational at Colonial on Thursday.

After Na's tee shot at the 399-yard ninth hole went into the rough to the right, his approach flew over the green and settled against a temporary grandstand. His relief was a drop into more rough, but after the chip to the green, the ball rolled over a ridge, started to curl and caught the right edge of the cup before falling to end his round.

That put him one stroke ahead of Charley Hoffman, who also was bogey-free when shooting a 63 in the morning round.

Jhonattan Vegas, Emiliano Grillo, Andrew Putnam and Beau Hossler shot 64.
