Frazar leads Phoenix Open

Arizona: Harrison Frazar tied his best PGA Tour score with a 9-under-par 62 on Thursday to open a two-stroke lead over John Huston and David Toms after the first round of the Phoenix Open. Despite the attention focused on youngsters like Aaron Baddeley and Sergio Garcia, the first round belonged to a relatively obscure veteran who has never won a PGA tournament. Retief Goosen, J J Henry, John Rollins, Luke Donald and James McLean carded 65s. Scott McCarron, Steve Elkington, Ian Leggatt, Charles Howell III, Dan Forsman, Tim Petrovic, Shaun Micheel and Kirk Triplett were a shot behind them. Garcia was in a group of 29 at 69. The cluster also included defending champion Chris DiMarco and former champions Phil Mickelson (1996) and Rocco Mediate (1999), who placed third in last week's Sony Open. (AP)
