Tommy Armour III leads in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE, July 11 (UPI) -- Tommy Armour III, whose only PGA Tour victory came a dozen years ago, grabbed the opening-round lead at the Greater Milwaukee Open Thursday by firing a 7-under 64.

Armour, whose grandfather won the PGA Championship in 1930, had a one-shot advantage over Bo Van Pelt, Kenny Perry, Deane Pappas and Jeff Sluman.

Another shot back at 65 were defending champion Shigeki Maruyama, Steve Stricker, Bryce Molder and Kelly Gibson.

Jerry Kelly, who won last week at the Western Open, shot a 70. He said he was worn out after his emotional victory.

"That was probably the worst lack of adrenaline I've ever had in a golf round," Kelly said. "I was pretty happy to get out of there with 1-under. I was kind of a mess out there. My face muscles were tired. My eyeballs were tired."
