SNOQUALMIE, Wash., Aug. 24 (UPI) -- Defending champion Mark Calcavecchia shot a 7-under 65 Friday that put him three shots in front after one round of the Boeing Classic.
Calcavecchia's first Champions Tour victory came at this event a year ago and he has since captured another title in Montreal.
He played the first eight holes of the TPC-Snoqualmie Ridge course in 5-under, and then birdied four out of six holes on the back nine. He suffered two bogeys, one of them coming on the par-5 18th hole.
Willie Wood, coming off his first Champions Tour win at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open, was among those who shot 69.
