BEIJING -- South Korea's Ted Oh fired a 5-under par 67 Thursday to lead the first day of the TCL Classic in the southern city of Dongguan.

Oh had a bogey-free round to head a field which included John Daly and Colin Montgomerie -- both of whom shot 2-under in the $1 million tournament, the richest on the Asian PGA Tour.

"I am happy to be two-under,'' Montgomerie said. "I had trouble on the greens and was allowing for too much break because of the slickness of the greens at Valderrama last week.''

Montgomerie won in Spain last Sunday, sharing the Volvo Masters title with Bernhard Langer.
