Colin Montgomerie started his week with a 6- under 66 in Friday's first round and he holds a 1-shot lead at the ACE Group Classic.

Montgomerie, who is a 31-time winner on the European Tour, earned his first two victories on the Champions Tour last season. Those two wins were major titles at the Senior PGA Championship and the U.S. Senior Open Championship.

Right behind Montgomerie is Tommy Armour III, who is in sole possession of second place following his 5-under 67 on the Talon Course at The TwinEagles Club.

Defending champion Kirk Triplett had a strong start with a 4-under 68 and he is tied for third with Lee Janzen heading into the weekend.

Last week's Allianz Championship winner Paul Goydos opened with a 3-under 69 and he is tied for fifth with Bobby Wadkins, Marco Dawson, Wes Short, Jr., Esteban Toledo, Scott Dunlap and Michael Allen.
