McLachlin, Wilson fall behind early at Colonial
After letting his first chance of winning a PGA Tour event slip away last week, Honolulu's Parker McLachlin began yesterday's first round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a bogey.
It was one of four for the Punahou School graduate, who also managed four birdies to go with them to open with an even-par 70. He trails front-runner Johnson Wagner by seven shots and is tied for 34th with 20 other golfers.
Former Kaneohe resident Dean Wilson is also playing this week. He opened with a 2-over 72 and is in danger of missing the cut. He carded a double bogey at the par-4 fifth and another bogey at the ninth to make the turn at 38. He had two birdies and one bogey on the back to finish in a tie for 72nd.
Wilson has fond memories of the Colonial. In 2003, he was paired with Annika Sorenstam as she tried to become the first woman since 1945 to make the cut in a PGA Tour event.
