PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — With one great shot, Camilo Villegas turned a solid round into his lowest start in more than a year.

Villegas drilled a 3-wood to 8 feet on the par-5 18th hole and made the eagle putt for a 6-under 64.

That gave him a one-shot lead over Rickie Fowler, Branden Grace, Graham DeLaet and Robert Streb after the first round of the Honda Classic.

Defending champion Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods each had a 70.
