SLUMPING LEONARD SHOOTS OPENING 64

Justin Leonard, stuck in a winless streak of 2 2/3 years and more than 100 tournaments, fired a six-under-par 64 on Thursday to share the first-round lead at the Westin Texas Open in San Antonio.

Joining the tie at the top after the first day of the $2.6 million event were Loren Roberts, Mark Weibe and Mike Sposa.

The 64 was Leonard's lowest score of the season by two shots.

"I know other people are expecting me to win, but I try not to think about it," said Leonard, the 1997 British Open champion who is winless since the 1998 Players Championship.

Former Texas Open champion Blaine McCallister, a native of the Lone Star State who now lives in Florida, was among a large group of players entering today's second round (4 p.m, ESPN) one shot back at 65.
