ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) Doug Garwood birdied the final three holes for an 8-under 64 and the first-round lead Friday in the Dick's Sporting Goods Open.
The 55-year-old Garwood had nine birdies and a bogey, playing his final nine holes - the front nine at En-Joie Golf Club - in 6-under 31.
"Drove it well, hit the irons well, pitched well, putted well, thought well," Garwood said. "I got to a point I was just making birdies and I kind of lost track of how it was going," Garwood said. "That's always a good thing."
