LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Japan’s Kiyoshi Murota’s 66 gives him a one-stroke lead over Nick Price and Trevor Dodds after completion of the rain-delayed first round Friday at the Senior PGA Championship.
Murota finished his round on Thursday before half the field was unable to get through 18 holes after weather set the start back and delayed play for more than four hours.
Price, a former British Open and PGA Championship winner, returned to the course Friday to play the second half of his round and ended up with a 67 to join Dodds at that number.
Another shot back at 4-under 68 were former Masters and British Open winner Mark O’Meara, Loren Roberts and Olin Browne.
Hale Irwin, a four-time Senior PGA Championship winner, led a pack at 69 that also included local favorite Kenny Perry.
