Getting off to a quick start is nothing new for Charlie Wi. Now if he can only find a way to finish. Wi ended his opening round with back-to-back birdies for an 8-under-par 64 on the easier Palm Course at Disney to take a one-shot lead Thursday in the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, the final event on the 2012 PGA Tour schedule. It's the eighth time Wi has had the 18-hole lead on the PGA Tour, and the third time this year. But the 40-year-old Wi has yet to win on the PGA Tour. Wi had a one-shot lead over Camilo Villegas and Tommy Gainey. The top 12 players on the leaderboard all came from the Palm course, which played 1.7 shots easier than the Magnolia. Henrik Stenson and Charles Howell III were among five players who had the low round on Magnolia at 68.
