Punahou graduate Parker McLachlin shot a 4-under-par 68 yesterday and was four strokes off the lead after the first round of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am at Pebble Beach, Calif.
Defending champion Dustin Johnson closed with five consecutive birdies to tie the tournament record with a 30 on the back nine to shoot 64 at Spyglass Hill, traditionally the toughest course of the three used for this tournament.
McLachlin, who also played Spyglass, shot 5-under 31 on the front nine with three birdies and an eagle. He had one birdie and one double bogey on the back nine.
