Haas Leads after Day One of Senior PGA Championship

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jay Haas and Duffy Waldorf shared the first-round lead yesterday in the Senior PGA Championship, shooting 5-under 66 in breezy, cool conditions at Bellerive Country Club.

The 59-year-old Haas, the winner of the major championship in 2006 and 2008, had a bogey-free round. The 50-year-old Waldorf had six birdies and one bogey.

Haas has 16 Champions Tour victories after winning nine times on the PGA Tour. Waldorf is winless in 11 career starts on the 50-and-over tour after winning four times on the PGA Tour.

Sonny Skinner, the PGA head professional at River Pointe Golf Club in Albany, Ga., was a stroke back along with Japan's Kiyoshi Murota.

Defending champion Roger Chapman opened with a 72. Peter Jacobsen, the 2004 U.S. Senior Open winner at Bellerive, had a 75.
