Four more birdies on the back nine, along with a bogey and double-bogey put him six strokes back of Conrad Shindler (Phoenix, Ariz.) who posted a 10-under-par 62 in the opening round.

Gligic, 27, is playing on the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada this season. His best result to date is a T14 at the Bayview Place Cardtronics Open presented by Times Colonist.
