Haas, Huston share Champions Tour lead

BLAINE, Minn., Aug. 5 (UPI) -- Jay Haas and John Huston both turned in an 8-under 64 Friday, leaving them tied for the lead after one round of the 3M Championship.

Huston is a tour rookie playing in his eighth event.

Peter Senior, Garry Hallberg, Rod Spittle and Tom Lehman, the tour's leading money winner, shared third place at 65. Joey Sindelar, David Eger, Kenny Perry and Mark Calcavecchia were another shot back.

Olin Browne, the winner of last week's U.S. Senior Open, shot a 71. Brad Faxon, a four-time winner on the regular circuit, made his Champions Tour debut and posted a 68. Faxon turned 50 Aug. 1.
