Day, Standly Start Fast

Early starters Glen Day and Mike Standly each turned in the best score of his career, 9-under-par 62, and were tied for the first-round lead at the FedEx-St. Jude Golf Classic in Memphis, Tenn.

Day had an eagle, eight birdies and a bogey; Standly had nine birdies, including five in a row.

Dennis Paulson was third at 64. Seven golfers were at 66. Pullman’s Kirk Triplett shot 68.

One day after enjoying a practice round with Arnold Palmer, his favorite golfer, Larry Ringer shot a 4-under-par 68 to share the lead with J.C. Snead after the opening round of the U.S. Senior Open at Bethesda, Md.

The former golf coach at the Naval Academy had the round of his life. He didn’t make a bogey, had 12 one-putt greens and twice drained putts of more than 30 feet.

“Yesterday I played with the king, and today I played like a king,” he said.

Palmer, meanwhile, had a 72 despite a double bogey after three-putting on the 14th hole.
