Matthews 5 back after first round in Bogota A pair of eagles and a strong finish helped Brandon Matthews fire a 4-under-par 67 on the Founders course in Thursday’s opening round of the Country Club de Bogota Championship on the Web.com Tour. The Dupont native had a solid start on his first nine, the back nine of the Founders layout, the harder of the two courses being played this week. Matthews made an eagle-2 on the 389-yard, par-4 14th hole and followed it with a birdie on No. 18 to reach 3-under at the turn. The 24-year-old double-bogeyed the par-4 first and then added a bogey on No. 4 to come back to even par. But a birdie-birdie-eagle burst on Nos. 6-8, the last a par 5, put Matthews in a tie for 16th after the opening round. His 67 was the second-lowest round of the day on the Founders layout. Matthews is five shots behind leader Xinjun Zhang, who shot a 9-under 61 on the Pacos and Fabios course. Players change courses for today’s second round. Matthews will tee off at 8:50 a.m. — STAFF REPORTS
