Bernhard Langer leads Champions Tour

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Bernhard Langer birdied three of the last four holes for 8-under 63 and a two-stroke lead Friday after the first round of the Champions Tour's Toshiba Classic.

Langer, the 2008 winner, had eight birdies in his bogey-free round at Newport Beach Country Club.

"I played really solid through the whole bag," Langer said. "I hit most of the greens in regulation, and I was happy with just about every club in my bag."

Fred Couples, Jeff Hart and Taiwan's Chien Soon Lu shot 65, and Kenny Perry, Michael Allen, Kirk Triplett, Duffy Waldorf and Scott Simpson were another stroke back.

Defending champion David Frost opened with 72.

Langer has broken par in all 10 of his rounds this season and 19 of his last 20.

"What happened with that one round," Langer joked.
