CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) _ PGA Tour rookie Jim Renner, a New England
native, shot a 7-under 63 to take a one-stroke lead after the
rain-delayed first round at the Travelers Championship.

Renner, who had played just one Tour event before this season,
shot a 29 on his front nine Friday after making par on his first
two holes. He finished the round and headed right to the first tee
to begin his second round.

Rain washed out much of Thursday’s play at TPC River Highlands,
and Renner was among those hoping to get in 36 holes on Friday.

He led a group of four players at 6 under, while defending
champion Bubba Watson was three back after shooting 66 during his
round Friday morning.
