Four Share Lead After One Round at Doral

March 03, 2000|From Associated Press

Toned down from a controversial redesign that kept top players from coming back, the Doral-Ryder Open had a familiar look to it Thursday--low scores and familiar faces on the leader board at Miami.

Bruce Lietzke had eight birdies in a round of seven-under 65 that left him tied after the first round with Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk and Harrison Frazar.

Phil Mickelson, Nick Price and Bernhard Langer were among the six players a stroke back.

Erik Compton, the first heart-transplant recipient to play the PGA Tour, had a 72.

Janice Moodie's opening 67 gave her a one-stroke lead in the Takefuji Classic at Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

Karrie Webb, who has won all three tournaments she has played this year, shares second with Annika Sorenstam, Chris Johnson and Jill McGill.

England's Lee Westwood and Argentina's Jose Coceres shot course-record 64s to share the first-round lead in the Dubai Desert Classic at Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Darren Clarke of Northern Ireland finished at one-under 71.
