Jones, McNeill tied for Puerto Rico lead

RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico, March 8 (UPI) -- Matt Jones and George McNeill grabbed a share of the lead Thursday at the 18-hole mark of the Puerto Rico Open.

The co-leaders each turned in a 6-under 66 at the Trump International Golf Club.

Although the sport's top players are participating in a World Golf Championship event in Florida this week, this PGA Tour stop has its share of former major championship winners in the field.

Ben Curtis, who has captured a British Open, was alone in third at 67. Another former British Open champ, Todd Hamilton, was tied for fourth at 68 with Jeff Overton, Kevin Kisner and Daniel Summerhays.

Those at 3-under 69 included two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen, Masters and U.S. Open winner Angel Cabrera and one-time PGA champion Shaun Micheel.

Defending champion Michael Bradley shot an even-par 72 and was tied for 53rd.
