KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- Ryan Moore had 10 birdies in a nearly blemish-free round to card a 9-under 63 and take a two-shot lead after the opening round of the CIMB Classic on Thursday.

The American, coming off a top 10 finish at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open last weekend, surged into the lead with a 25-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole and then capped off the round with another birdie on the 18th after sticking his approach shot within inches of the hole.

Keegan Bradley had seven birdies to finish two strokes back in second place at 7-under 65, and Sergio Garcia was another shot behind at 6 under.

It was a tough day for defending champion Nick Watney, who had two bogeys on his first three holes and ended up in a share of 65th place at 3 over.
