DENVER, May 27 (UPI) -- Bernhard Langer and Robin Freeman each had a 6-under 66 Thursday that left them tied at the top after one round of the Senior PGA Championship.
Langer has led the Champions Tour in earnings each of the last two years and has two wins on the circuit this season. Freeman has not had a victory on any tour in a dozen years.
The event is being played at the Colorado Golf Club, a Ben Crenshaw-designed course that opened three years ago in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
Fred Couples, a three-time winner in his first year on the Champions Tour, shot a 69 and was tied for fifth with Bill Glasson, Bill Loeffler and Tom Kite. Defending champion Michael Allen shot a 71. Crenshaw posted a 72.
