Rob Wilkin blistered Hallbrook Country Club’s pristine 6,908-yard golf course Friday, grabbing a 4-stroke lead during the opening round of the 2016 Watson Challenge.

Wilkin, who is the head professional at Heritage Park Golf Course in Olathe and has some experience playing on the PGA Tour as well as the PGA Tour Champions, birdied two of the final three holes and finished with a 5-under par 67.
