MADISON, Miss., Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Bob Tway shot 8-under-par 64 Thursday to lead after one round of the Southern Farm Bureau Classic at Madison, Miss.
The event was re-scheduled to this week from Oct. 6-9 because of the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the area near the tournament's site. All net proceeds will be donated to Hurricane Katrina relief.
"It is kind of amazing that we are even holding the golf tournament this week," Tway said. "It's pretty neat to see that they were able to persevere and have it."
Kirk Triplett, Joey Snyder III, Brian Henninger and Paul Gow are tied for seventh place at 5-under-par 67.
Byrd has not missed a cut since late August.
