Singapore's Lam Chih Bing fired a 5-under 66 Thursday to share the first-round lead with Japan's Tatsuya Haraguchi at the Asia Pacific Panasonic Open.

Lam carded six birdies against a lone bogey at the Joyo Country Club. Haraguchi had five birdies in a bogey-free round at the 6,352-yard, par-71 course.

Four golfers, including Japan's Tomohiro Kondo, were a further stroke back at 4 under.

Lam was injured in a freakish accident which could have blinded him in one eye after Mardan Mamat accidentally hit him in the face with a driver on Monday.

"I'm just very happy that I got to tee off today and it's an even bigger bonus that I played good," Lam said.
