The Colombian and the American finished the first day of the tournament with 63 strokes, eight under par, to become the first leaders of the tournament.

Villegas also shone like his compatriot Muñoz by completing the course perfectly, which began with an eagle, on par 5 of hole 2 and completed the rest of the way with another five birdies.

The Venezuelan Jhonattan Venegas delivered a signed card of 67 strokes (-4) that left him placed in twelfth place, tied with 16 other players, among which is the Argentine Fabián Gómez, who had the same record.

His compatriot Andrés Romero finished with a record of 69 strokes (-2) to share the 52nd position with 22 other players who also had the same score at the end of the round.
