Davidson, NC (Sports Network) - Nick O'Hern carded a 5-under 67 on Thursday to grab a share of the lead after the first round of the Chiquita Classic.

O'Hern was joined atop the leaderboard by Hudson Swafford, Ben Kohles and Edward Loar, who already has his PGA Tour card for next season thanks to his fourth-place finish on the Web.com Tour money list.

D.J. Brigman, Peter Tomasulo, Matt Davidson and Troy Merritt are tied for fifth place at minus-4 at River Run Country Club.

Michael Putnam, who topped the regular season Web.com Tour money list, and Bronson La'Cassie, who finished sixth on the money list, share ninth place at 3-under 69. They stand alongside Tim Petrovic, Jeff Klauk, Will MacKenzie and Brett Stegmaier.

This is the second event of the Web.com Tour finals. The top 25 from the regular season tour money list already have their PGA Tour cards for next season, but are still playing for priority ranking. The next available 25 from the finals series money list will also earn their PGA Tour cards for next season.

Last week's winner Trevor Immelman carded a 1-over 73, which left him tied for 77th.
