Goodes Sets Pace on Champions Tour


Mike Goodes carded a 3-under 69 for a one-stroke lead in the Insperity Championship. The $1.8 million Champions Tour event began on a chilly, windy Friday that yielded few birdies at The Woodlands Country Club in Texas.

Goodes, a 56-year-old from North Carolina in search of his second title on the over-50 circuit, had four birdies and a bogey to go up by one over Gene Sauers after 18 holes.

The only other players to break par with 71s were Brian Henninger, Mark Brooks, Hal Sutton, Michael Allen and Mark Bucek.

Defending champion Fred Funk opened with a 75. Other scores included a 77 by Charles Schwab Cup leader Bernhard Langer, and a 78 by two-time senior major winner Roger Chapman.
