KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) David Toms and Joe Durant each shot 7-under 65 in windy conditions Thursday to share the first-round lead in the PGA Tour Champions' season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai.

The 52-year-old Toms closed his bogey-free round with a 2-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th. He won the U.S. Senior Open last year for his first Champions title after winning 13 times on the PGA Tour.

"I didn't know what to expect," Toms said. "I had played well all week, but we hadn't had any wind, so that was nice to go out there and be able to control the ball and do all the things you need to do to be able to play in the wind. Got off to a good start and just kind of kept going."
