LEWIS TAMES DISNEY WITH OPENING 62

Despite missing two easy birdie putts at the end of the round, J.L. Lewis didn't fret over what could have been and took his 10-under 62 for what it was -- his best start ever on the PGA Tour and a two-shot lead Thursday in the Funai Classic at Disney in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Lewis putted for birdie on every hole and made 11 of them on the Magnolia course to match his career-low round.

With a 66, Vijay Singh got off to a solid start in his bid to win his fourth straight PGA Tour event, which would push him over the $10 million mark this year.

Two-time Disney champion John Huston, Mark Hensby and Scott Hend each had a 64 to go into today's second round (3 p.m., ESPN).

In Sonoma, Calif., Dana Quigley walked the course in a rhapsodic haze, still enthralled by the improbable success of his beloved Boston Red Sox.

When he finally woke up, the Champions Tour's most durable player found himself in second place after the first round of the Charles Schwab Cup Championship with a 7-under 65, one stroke behind Tom Kite.
