Central Virginia native Mikey Moyers made his PGA Tour debut with a plus-seven 77 Thursday in the first round of the Greenbrier Classic.
Moyers opened with bogeys on three of his first four holes, and finished the front nine at six-over. A double-bogey on 11 dropped Moyers to plus-eight, but he finished the round by shooting minus-one over his final seven holes -- including a birdie on the par-four4 14th.
Moyers -- a 2009 graduate of William Monroe High School who played college golf at Virginia Tech -- finished the round with 10 pars, six bogeys, one birdie, and one double-bogey. His 77 puts him in 154th place out of 155 golfers, in front of Rod Perry, who shot a plus-eight 78 on Thursday.
Brian Gay also shot a 78 on Thursday, then withdrew from the tournament.
Moyers was one of four golfers who qualified for the Greenbrier Classic on Monday. He shot a five-under 66 at Glade Springs in West Virginia to earn a spot in his first career PGA field.
Moyers is part of a threesome that will begin second round play at 8:50 a.m. Friday. He's grouped with Alex Prugh (one-over after a 71 on Thursday) and Hudson Swafford (two-over after a 72).
