ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) Kevin Sutherland shot a 7-under 65 for a share of the Dick's Sporting Goods Open lead Friday, three years after scorching the En-Joie course for the only 59 in PGA Tour Champions history.

Sutherland had eight birdies and a bogey to join Wes Short Jr. atop the first-round leaderboard.

"I think I just feel comfortable on the course," Sutherland said. "I think the key to this golf course is driving the ball in the fairway and I've been doing that ever since I got here for some reason. I like the way it must look off the tee and hit a lot of good tee shots today and hit the ball in the fairway."
