Russ Cochran leads at First Tee Open
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Russ Cochran made six consecutive birdies and shot a 7-under 65 to take the first-round lead at the First Tee Open on Friday.
Cochran had seven birdies overall and played a bogey-free round in his return to the Champions Tour after suffering a wrist injury that led to a two-month layoff. Cochran was only 1 under through 11 holes before going on his run of birdies at the Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Defending tournament champion Ted Schulz struggled all afternoon and is at 1 over 73.
