Singh leads Buick Open

July 29, 2004 at 7:43 PM   |   Comments

GRAND BLANC, Mich., July 29 (UPI) -- Vijay Singh, seeking his fourth victory of the year, shot a 9-under 63 Thursday to take the first-round lead at the Buick Open.

Tiger Woods, playing for the first time since the British Open, was four shots off the pace in a tie for ninth.

Olin Browne was alone in second at 64 while Mike Grob birdied three of the final four holes to shoot a 65.

Heavy rains early in the week left the greens soft and, with little wind, the Warwick Hills course yielded plenty of low scores.

"It was probably as easy as we've ever seen it here," Woods said.

Singh equaled his low round of the year.

Defending champion Jim Furyk shot a 66 to share fourth place with Brenden Pappas, Len Mattiace, Craig Barlow and David Peoples.
