Co-leaders at the Champions golf event

SAVANNAH, Ga., April 24 (UPI) -- Two teams -- Tom Lehman and Bernhard Langer, and Fuzzy Zoeller and John Jacobs -- share the first-round lead at the Legends of Golf Tournament in Georgia.

Both teams shot a combined 11-under-par 61 Friday at the event that led to the Champions Tour. The best-ball tournament is being played at the Westin Savannah Harbor Resort and Spa.

Zoeller-Jacobs started with eight birdies in 11 holes and Zoeller's birdie putt at the 16th eventually was enough to match Lehman-Langer. The latter duo made five birdies through its first eight holes and continued its momentum when Langer holed a pitching-wedge for an eagle at the par-4 ninth.

"I thought if I catch it solid and on line, it shouldn't be too far away," Langer said. "And it turned out that I ended up perfect."

The duo of Sandy Lyle of England and Ian Woosnam of Wales shot 10-under 62 and is alone in third.
