Florida: A sub-par card eluded Jeev Milkha Singh who teed off his campaign in the Honda Classic with a nervy one-over 71 to lie tied 43rd after the opening round of the $5.6 million event here on Thursday.

Playing his back nine first, the top Indian golfer did not have a great start at the Champion Course of the PGA National Resort and Spa where the 12th hole bogey left him one-over at the turn.

Australian Nathan Green and American Michael Connell fired identical seven-under 65 to grab the opening round lead with the trio of Alexandre Rocha, Oliver Wilson and Camilo Villegas trailing them by one shot. — PTI
