BARRINGTON, R.I. -- Nick Price and Scott McCarron combined for a 10-under 61 and took a one-stroke lead over three teams in the first round of the CVS Charity Classic on Monday.
 
Price, who will be inducted into the PGA Hall of Fame on Oct. 20, and McCarron, who won nearly $2 million last year, combined for 11 birdies and one bogey on the 6,688-yard Rhode Island Country Club course, which was saturated Sunday by 2 inches of rain.
 
Tied for second in the 36-hole, best-ball format were Barrington natives Dana Quigley, who has eight victories on the PGA Champions Tour, and his nephew, Brett, who led the 2003 U.S. Open after the first round; Davis Love III and Fred Couples; and Peter Jacobsen and Jerry Kelly.
 
Defending champions Chris DiMarco and Dudley Hart were tied with four other teams at 63. There were 10 teams in the field of the $1.2 million event.
 
Rich Beem and Tom Herron, who were also at 63, had the day's low nine-hole score, a 7-under 28 on the back.
 
Players were allowed to lift, clean and place in the fairways because of the soggy conditions.
