(TSX / STATS) -- Chris Kirk made an 18-foot putt for eagle on his last hole to finish with a 9-under-par 63 Thursday, giving him a one-stroke lead after one round of the RSM Classic in St. Simons Island, Ga.

Kirk played the Plantation Course at Sea Island Golf Club, and the seven best scores of the day were recorded on that course.

Joel Dahmen is alone in second after shooting a 64, and three players -- Sea Island resident Hudson Swafford, Jason Kokrak and Brian Gay -- are tied for third another stroke back.
