DULUTH, Ga., May 17 (UPI) -- Kevin Sutherland, having missed the cut at this event the last two years, fired a 7-under 65 Thursday to lead by two after one round of the AT&T Classic.
"You're not going to shoot 65s very often, so it was a lot of fun," Sutherland said. He had eight birdies and a bogey.
Those at 67 were Stephen Marino, Tommy Armour III, Craig Kanada, Ryuji Imada and Bob May, who has made little impact on the tour since he lost to Tiger Woods in a sudden death playoff at the 2000 PGA Championship.
Mark Brooks, winner of the PGA Championship 11 years ago, was in the group at 68, while Rory Sabbatini and two-time U.S. Open champ Lee Janzen were among those at 69.
Henrik Stenson, ranked seventh in the world, is the only player among the Top 10 competing this week. Defending champion Phil Mickelson is among the missing.
