San Martin, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jeff Overton fired a 7-under 64 on Thursday to grab a 1-stroke lead at the end of the first round of the Frys.com Open.

Brian Harman shot a 6-under 65 during his opening round at CordeValle Golf Club to sit in second place, while Kyle Stanley is alone in third following his 5-under 66.

"This place is awesome," Overton said about CordeValle. "It's one of the better golf courses we play all year. Not that any of them are bad, but it's really a neat place and it's really cool."

Michael Putnam, who recently won the Web.com Tour's regular season money title to earn his PGA Tour card for this season, carded a 4-under 67 to sit in a share of fourth place. He is joined by Jason Kokrak, J.J. Henry, Charlie Wi, Jim Herman and Brooks Koepka.

This event is the first of the PGA Tour's new fall-to-late-summer 2013-14 schedule, which includes an early opportunity for players to earn FedExCup points.
