Continuing his scorching play on the PGA Tour, Sean O\'Hair fired a season-best 65 to
take the first-round lead at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship. Defending champion
Brett Wetterich and Anders Hansen are a stroke back.

Just 24, O\'Hair\'s career has mostly been notable for the story of his upbringing, as
he was pushed by his father into the professional ranks at the tender age of 17. It
was two years ago at the very same event that the story of O\'Hair\'s upbringing was
given big play by the golf media, as O\'Hair found himself in contention.

O\'Hair told reporters he has moved past that time of his life and was focusing on
golf and family now.

You want to be known for obviously who you are as a person and your game, those two
things. You don\'t want to be known for other stuff,\" said O\'Hair. \"I think as far as
my life, my life is in a great spot. I mean, I\'ve got two beautiful kids that I love
to death and I\'ve got a beautiful wife who does nothing but support me. I\'ve just
got a great support system, and I just think that I\'m very blessed and I\'m very
fortunate to be in the situation that I\'m in.\"

In 2007, O\'Hair\'s play has been the only thing gaining him attention, and is coming
off four consecutive Top-15 finishes, highlighted by a seventh-place finish at the
Verizon Heritage. O\'Hair currently ranks No. 63 on the PGA Tour money list, having
earned more than $400,000 thus far. O\'Hair said confidence has been a main cog in
his improved play.

\"You know, obviously for somebody to come out here and compete with the best, you\'ve
got to have confidence,\" said O\'Hair. \"And I\'m starting to get to that point where I
understand what makes me play well, and it\'s just - certain things to do, whether it
be working out, whether it be things to do after a round or before a round. I\'m
starting to kind of get into some routines and stuff, just stuff like that that
helps you play better.\"
Wetterich, who will be known as the last Byron Nelson Championship winner that Byron
Nelson personally congratulated, eagled hole No. 16 and just missed a birdie putt on
the final hole that would have given him a share of the lead.
