GREENSBORO, N.C.-After shooting 3-under-par 67s Tuesday, Jace Moore of Southlake, Texas, Will Osborne of Wichita Falls, Texas, and Webb Simpson of Raleigh, N.C., lead after the first round of the Chrysler AJGA Boys Invitational.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 72-hole championship event features 99 players representing 21 states, Chile and Japan. The field also includes 14 of the nation's top-20 ranked players. Hall of Famer Arnold Palmer serves as honorary chairman for the event.

Moore's 4-under-par performance on the front nine set the tone for the rest of his day. He birdied four of the first seven holes, including both par-3s.

"I started off the competition by sinking a 12-foot putt. I made birdies on the second, third, fifth and seventh holes," Moore said. "It really boosted my confidence."

Osborne achieved his initial goal of placing in the top five after the first round. His success began after sinking a 50-foot putt on the ninth hole. Osborne labeled his putting as the key ingredient to his success on Tuesday.

"I putted really well today," the 17-year-old said. "Hopefully I'll continue to do well through the final round."

After finishing second in the Chrysler AJGA Boys Invitational last year, Simpson continued his impressive play at the Pete Dye design in Tuesday's first round, shooting 3-under-par 67. He made 15 pars and 3 birdies on the day.

"I tried to think positive and take one shot at a time," Simpson said. "I didn't try anything special. You can't overpower this course."

Chad Wilcox of Peoria, Ariz., carded 2-under-par 68 to take fourth place. He posted a 34 on both the front and back nines.

Tied for fifth place shooting 1-under-par 69s were Mark Harrell of Hazlehurst, Ga., Erik Flores of Grass Valley, Calif., Samuel Saunders of Windermere, Fla., Josh Esler of Wauconda, Ill., Chris Kirk of Woodstock, Ga., and Brian Harman of Savannah, Ga.
Second-round tee times will begin Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. off the No. 1 tee at The Cardinal.
