THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Andy Bean fired a 7-under 65 Friday that put him one stroke in front after the opening round of the Champions Tour's Administaff Small Business Classic.

Bean, who won 11 times on the PGA Tour, is seeking his second victory of the year on the Champions circuit.
