European pair jump to first-round lead at Texas Open

Published September 22, 2006
SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Far removed from the Ryder Cup matches this week in Ireland, Europeans Justin Rose and Alex Cejka shot 6-under 64 on Thursday to share the first-round lead in the Texas Open.
Rose, coming off three consecutive top-14 finishes, had eight birdies and two bogeys on the LaCantera Golf Club's Resort Course.
"I have been playing well the last three weeks, and I guess my one concern has been running out of steam and stuff like that," said England's Rose, 26. "I'm back in the tournament from the word go."
After tying for fourth in the Deutsche Bank Championship, Rose had the third-round lead in the Canadian Open before a 74 slipped him 14th. He tied for 14th in last week's 84 Lumber Classic.
Bob Burns, Ted Purdy, David McKenzie and D.A. Points are a stroke back at 65.
LPGA: Jeong Jang fired a bogey-free 8-under par 64 during the first round of the Long Drugs Challenge in Danville, Calif. She is three strokes better than Karrie Webb and Lorie Kane. Clearwater's Jennifer Gleason shot 1-under 71 and Seminole's Brittany Lincicome was at even 72. Tampa's Beth Bauer shot 5-over 77.
Nationwide: Oregon-native Jason Allred looked comfortable in his home state, jumping out to the first-round lead at the Oregon Classic at Junction City with 7-under 65. Ryan Armour and Kyle Riefers are one stroke back.
U.S. Senior Amateur: Indianapolis businessman Mike Bell won the USGA event, holing an 8-foot par putt on the final hole to beat Tom McGraw 1-up in Newburgh, Ind.
