Kyle Stanley leads the Puerto Rico Open by two shots after the opening round at Coco Beach Golf Course.


The 32-year-old American, looking for his third PGA Tour title, recorded a flawless back nine which included four birdies before making five further gains on the front nine and adding a bogey on the eighth hole for an eight-under-par 64.

Compatriots Peter Uihlein, Josh Teater and Chris Couch finished with a score of 66 alongside Argentina’s 2015 runner-up Emiliano Grillo, Sweden’s Henrik Norlander and Australia’s Rhein Gibson in a six-way tie for second.


Scotland’s Martin Laird sits a shot further back following a round of 67 that included six birdies and one bogey after finishing with the same score as 2013 winner Scott Brown and four others.

Defending champion Martin Trainer, who claimed his maiden PGA Tour title by three shots last year, struggled on the 16th with a double bogey in a round of 74 that also included five birdies and five bogeys to sit 10 strokes off the pace on two under.
