Dan Forsman shot a 7-under 65 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead over Fred Funk, David Frost and Larry Mize after the first round of the Greater Hickory Classic.

Frost and Mize had bogey-free rounds, and Funk had four birdies and a closing eagle on the par-5 18th. Defending champion Mark Wiebe and Jay Don Blake shot 67. Wiebe had a hole-in-one on No. 3.
