GREENVILLE — Thursday’s opening round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am clearly illustrates the varying nature of career statuses on the Web.com Tour, with a hodgepodge of players tied at 8 under over the three-course rotation.

Officials instituted a lift, clean, and place approach due to the threat of inclement weather. That decision aided the extremely low scoring, as did the participants being greeted by slower greens dampened from overnight showers.

The five leaders posted rounds of 8-under par, followed by eight players at 7 under and nine more at 6 under. Just outside those cramped quarters are a trio of former in-state college alums. Wofford's Andrew Novak, USC’s Matthew NeSmith and Clemson’s Billy Kennerly all played at Thornblade Club and are among a group of 25 players tied for 23rd at 5 under.

Among the leading five is rookie Cameron Champ, a 22-year-old Texas A&M alum who played on last year’s Walker Cup team and in the U.S. Open as an amateur, with zero Web.com career top-10s. He joined Vince India, a 29-year-old veteran of 63 Web.com Tour events whose last two outings this month came in Jamaica and Costa Rica on the PGA’s LatinoAmerica Tour, with 63 at Thornblade.

“I think I’ve rebuilt some confidence that hasn’t been there in a while the last couple of weeks,” said India, who has missed cuts in all three Web.com Tour starts this season. “It’s almost like I have to care less. Sometimes you can get into a habit of trying too hard.”

Taylor Moore and Jin Park claimed their share of the top with 64s at The Cliffs Valley. Moore is a 24-year-old Arkansas alum who has won a Canadian Tour event and played in the 2016 Aruba Cup. He finished 38th on last season’s Web.com money list as a rookie and is currently 15th at $116,837, with two fifth-place finishes and a solo second over his last six events.

Park is a 38-year-old South Korean in his 18th year as a professional. He played at Arizona State and has no wins and 15 top-10s in 240 Web.com starts, having won more than $74,000 in a season just twice. He hadn’t broken par in his last six rounds entering Thursday.

Luke Guthrie tied his career-low with a 62 at Furman. He won twice in just 10 Web.com starts as a 2014 rookie and earned a whopping $410,593. He went on to the PGA Tour, where he’s garnered $3.12 million in earnings.
