Bettencourt leads DiMarco in Reno
RENO, Nev. — Matt Bettencourt shot a 6-under-par 66 for a one-stroke lead over PGA Tour veteran Chris DiMarco after the first round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.
Will MacKenzie, the 2006 Reno champ, is tied with Craig Bowden another stroke back at 4-under 68 at Montreux Golf & Country Club. A group of more than a dozen golfers at 3-under 69 includes Steve Elkington, Woody Austin and Mark Hensby.
Bettencourt won the 2008 Nationwide Tour Championship but has never won on the PGA Tour.
