Champions Tour Tees Off
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Mark Calcavecchia shot an 8 under 64 on Friday at Del Monte to take a two stroke lead over Tom Pernice Jr. in the Champions Tour's First Tee Open.

Calcavecchia, in his first season on the 50 and over tour after winning 13 times on the PGA Tour, capped his bogey free first round with a birdie on the par 5 ninth hole to equal his career low on the senior circuit.

Pernice, playing his first full season on the tour, birdied five of the first six holes at Pebble Beach, then had 10 straight pars and birdied the 17th en route to a 66.
