New Zealand golfer Danny Lee is five shots off the pace after the opening round of the Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour.

The Kiwi No 1 birdied his final hole to sign for a one-under par 69, putting him in a share of 43rd after the opening round at TPC River Highlands in Connecticut.

Lee had five birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey to trail the leader, American David Mathis, who had a hole-in-one in his round of 64, by five shots.

Meanwhile, Tim Wilkinson is four shots off the lead nearing the end of the opening round of the Wichita Open in Kansas on the second tier Nationwide Tour.

Wilkinson carded five birdies and two bogeys in a three-under par 68 at the Crestview Country Club to be tied for 33rd with most of the 156-strong field in the clubhouse.

The Manawatu lefthander, who was 43rd on the Nationwide order of merit heading into the tournament, was four shots off the pace being set by American Casey Wittenberg who fired a seven-under 64.

Steven Alker shot a one-under 70 to lie in a share of 78th.

On the European Tour, Michael Campbell had a rare sub-par round with five birdies in a two-under 70 to share 52nd after the opening round of the BMW International Open in Cologne.

Australian Marcus Fraser and Paraguay's Fabrizio Zanotti lead after eight-under 64s.
