Lake Buena Vista, Fla. • Getting off to a quick start is nothing new for Charlie Wi. Now if he can only find a way to finish.

Wi ended his round with back-to-back birdies for an 8-under 64 on the Palm Course at Disney to take a one-shot lead Thursday in the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic.

It's the eighth time Wi has had the 18-hole lead on the PGA Tour. But the 40-year-old Wi has yet to win on the PGA Tour.

Wi had a one-shot lead over Camilo Villegas and Tommy Gainey.

The top 12 players on the leaderboard came from the Palm course, which played 1.7 shots easier than the Magnolia.
