Darron Stiles shot an 8-under 64 on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead in the Nationwide Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am.

The tournament pairs celebrities with pros on the PGA Tour's developmental circuit. Stiles made seven birdies in a 10-hole stretch at The Carolina Country Club, one of three used by the tournament. His last birdie came on the par-3 17th hole and game him a one-shot edge over D.J. Brigman and Jim Herman. Brigman and Herman also played at The Carolina Country Club.

Jim Renner and Tim Wilkinson shot 6-under 65 at the Thornblade Club, the site of the final round. The group at 6 under also included Sam Saunders, Arnold Palmer's grandson. He opened with a 66 at The Carolina Country Club.

The event features celebrities such as actors Oliver Hudson, Jeffrey Donovan, Richard Schiff, Cheech Marin and Rob Morrow.
