Molder sets pace

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Bryce Molder birdied six of his last nine holes for a 6-under 64 and a one-stroke lead after the first round of the Dean & Deluca Invitational at Colonial.

Molder carded all six of his birdies on the front nine after playing his first nine at even par. He was in the first group of the day off the 10th tee, and was on the 16th green when play was stopped for 75 minutes because of rain and lightning.

Patrick Reed, Anirban Lahiri and Webb Simpson shot 65.


Mediate sizzles at Harbor Shore

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Rocco Mediate played the first 13 holes in 9 under and closed with five pars for a 62 to match the Senior PGA Championship and Harbor Shore records.

Mediate matched the marks set by Kenny Perry in the 2012 final round. The 53-year-old Mediate capped a front-nine 29 with an eagle on the par-5 ninth and added birdies on the par-3 11th and 13th holes at Jack Nicklaus-designed course.

Gene Sauers had a bogey-free 63. Bernhard Langer  opened with a 69 as he goes for an unprecedented sweep of all five PGA Tour Champions majors.


Kim leads

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Christina Kim fired an 8-under 64 to top the leaderboard in the LPGA's inaugural Volvik Championship.

Ariya Jutanugarn was a shot back as she tries to win her third consecutive start. Minjee Lee, So Yeon Ryu and Marina Alex shot 68, putting them four shots behind Kim.

Second-ranked Inbee Park's lingering thumb injury led her to withdraw from the tournament.
