Six players are tied atop the leaderboard at the Panama Championship after carding first-round 5-under 65s Thursday at the Golf Club of Panama.

Ken Duke, Scott Dunlap, David Branshaw, Miguel Angel Carballo, Peter Gustafsson and Scott Brown all hold a share of the lead after Round 1. Close at the heels of the top six players are ten players tied for seventh after opening the tournament with 4-under 66s. Six more players are another shot back at 3-under 67 and in a tie for 17th.

Jim Herman, who won the Moonah Classic earlier this month, is T-54 after an even-par 70, and Robert Gates, who won the season-opening New Zealand Open, is T-123 at 4-over 74.

Five players in the field were unable to complete the first round because of darkness.
