Claxton and Summerhays lead after round 1 at Q-School

Round one of six is over for the 171 players grinding it out at the PGA Tour qualifying school to try and make it into the top-25 and earn their 2012 PGA Tour cards.

Will Claxton and Daniel Summerhays share the lead at eight-under par, after both carding opening rounds of 64.

The event is played this year in La Quinta, California across two courses. The Nicklaus Tournament Course and the TPC Stadium course.

Claxton, who played three events this year on the Nationwide Tour, kept a clean card in round one with six birdies and an eagle for his share of the lead.

Summerhays, on the other hand played on the PGA Tour in 2011. Finishing outside the top-125 on the money list in the 171st position forced the Utah native to return to q-school to try and earn his card once again for 2012.

The pair lead at eight-under by one stroke over Vaughn Taylor, William McGirt, Sang-Moon Bae and Billy Hurley who are all at seven-under.

A group of three including Mark Anderson, Steven Bowditch and Jeff Maggert are two shots back at six-under.

18 holes down, only 90 more to go for these players -- Q-School.
