Rocco Mediate leads the Buick Open

GRAND BLANC, Mich., June 28 (UPI) -- Rocco Mediate Thursday shot 8-under-par 64 to grab a one-shot lead over three players after one round of the PGA's Buick Open at Grand Blanc, Mich.

Mediate, a five-time winner on the tour, made eight birdies in his bogey-free round.

"You gotta be aggressive this week because it's going to take a low score to win," Mediate said. "I hit driver on every tee, no matter what."

Mediate leads Brett Quigley, Woody Austin and Brian Bateman, who all shot 7-under 65.

Austin, the 1995 Buick Open winner, won the St. Jude Classic in Memphis three weeks ago.

Quigley is aiming for his first victory since he joined the tour in 1997. The highlight of his round was an eagle at the par-four 14th hole.

A bogey at No. 5 prevented Quigley from taking a share of the lead.

"You see the scores low every year," Quigley said. "I think you get used to seeing that (at this tournament)."
