MILWAUKEE (AP) Richard S. Johnson aced the 14th hole on his way to shooting a 63 that gave him a one stroke lead over the Pappas brothers after the first round of the U.S. Bank Championship.
Deane and Brenden Pappas could have become the first brothers to share the lead at a PGA event, but Johnson birdied from about 10 feet on the 18th hole to edge ahead.
Robert Garrigus, Dean Wilson and Patrick Sheehan were another shot behind. Defending champion Joe Ogilvie and Jesper Parnevik were in a group of ten tied at 66.
Johnson's hole-in-one with a 7-iron was the 18th this year on the PGA tour but the first on the Brown Deer Park Golf Course since Tiger Woods did it in 1996.
