English, Kuchar Grab Thursday Lead

Shoot a round of 59? Not good enough for Harris English and Matt Kuchar.

The pair of former champions combined for a 14-under 58 to take the lead after the first day of the Franklin Templeton Shootout in Naples, Florida, on Thursday.

The result was no surprise for the duo which won this tournament in 2013 and finished last year by a single stroke. They lead the tournament by one stroke over the combinations of Billy Horschel / Hunter Mahan and Graeme McDowell / Gary Woodland.

The two-man format left few players out of the running. The”worst two scores were still 7-under, leaving the three-day tournament wide open for anyone.
