(AP) Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel shot a 7-under 65 Thursday to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the Thailand Golf Championship.

The South African made four birdies in the first seven holes and added three more in a bogey-free round at Amata Spring Country Club to hold a one-shot advantage over Thitiphun Chuayprakong.

Schwartzel, the champion at Augusta National in 2011, says it's nice to put yourself in position ... I'm very happy with the way my game has started getting back.

Daniel Chopra shot a 67 to share third place with Javi Colomo.

Third-ranked Bubba Watson shot 68, including an eagle and six birdies, and defending champion Lee Westwood shot 70.
