Purtzer, Bryant team for first-round Legends lead

Brad Bryant and Tom Purtzer teamed for a 12-under-par 60 to take the first-round lead at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf championship Friday.

The round was one shot off the course record set in 2008 by Tom Watson and Andy North at the best-ball event at The Club at Savannah Harbor.

The key hole for the leaders was the par-5 seventh. Both players hit into hazards, but Purtzer managed to work his way out and save par from 10 feet.

Michael Allen and David Frost, Kenny Perry and Russ Cochran, Jeff Sluman and Brad Faxon, Bruce Fleisher and Tom Jenkins all were two strokes back at 62.
