Hanzel, of Savannah, Ga. and Hall, a Sea Island resident, both shot 1-under 69 on Monday and lead the field at one of the year's premier senior events.
The 54-hole senior invitational event began in 2012 and follows in the footsteps of the Jones Cup, an event that unofficially kicks off the amateur circuit each year at the same course.
John Armstrong of Frostburg, Md. and John Gibbs of Augusta, Ga. were second following Round 1. The duo shot identical 71s.
Defending champion Mike Bodney did not finish the first round, meaning there will be a new champion.
