Danny Lee and Tim Wilkinson both went under par at the US$6.2 million ($NZ 7.3m) Arnold Palmer Invitation golf tournament, but are a long way off the lead.

The Kiwi pair shot matching one-under 71s at the PGA Tour event to be in a tie for 40th.

World No 2 Adam Scott is the early, runaway leader after shooting a 10-under 62.

Like Scott, Wilkinson got to play in the better of the conditions at Orlando's Bay Hill Club, but, unlike the Australian, was unable to tear the course apart.

Wilkinson had three birdies and two bogeys.

Lee, who played in the afternoon, mixed five birdies with four bogeys.

Meanwhile, Steve Alker shot an opening round one-under 69 to be in a tie for 13th at the Web.com Tour's Panama Claro Championship this morning.

Alker turned in one-over, but made three birdies on the Panama Golf Course's front nine – his back nine – to get to one under, three behind Australian leader Aron Price.

It may be longer than we think, within five years
