SUTTON COLDFIELD, England, May 11 (UPI) -- England's Darren Clarke and Peter Hanson of Sweden are tied for the lead at 6-under-par 66 after 18 holes of the British Masters at Sutton Coldfield, England.

In a tie for third place at 4-under-par 68 heading into the second round are David Higgins of Ireland, Scotland's Andrew Coltart, Johan Edfors of Sweden, and Ian Poulter, Oliver Watson and Gary Emerson, all from England.
