Aubrey, Briggs (65) Take Lead at New Event in Pennsylvania

September 15, 2000|Associated Press

PAOLI, Pa. — With most of the big names sitting this one out, a pair of relative unknowns topped the leaderboard in the first SEI Pennsylvania Classic.

Emlyn Aubrey and Danny Briggs shot six-under-par 65s on Thursday to share the first-round lead in the first PGA Tour event in Pennsylvania in 20 years.

"I didn't have a lot of expectation as far as what I was going to shoot," said Briggs, who has never won a PGA Tour event. "I never look at the scoreboard. I never even looked at the guy that was carrying in our group to see how many under I was."

Loren Roberts and Frank Lickliter opened with 67s on the Waynesborough Country Club course, and Mark Calcavecchia topped a nine-player group at 68.

Briggs, who started on No. 10, birdied four of the last five holes. After he made a birdie putt on No. 8, a spectator shouted, "Tiger Who?"
