Furyk races out to the lead at Firestone
Jim Furyk, taking advantage of warm day and long tee shots, opens with 63 at Firestone
By The Associated Press

AKRON, Ohio (AP) Jim Furyk finally made some birdies a lot of them for a 7-under 63 to take the lead Thursday in the Bridgestone Invitational.

On a warm day with little wind, Furyk took advantage of the pristine conditions at Firestone to build a two-shot lead over Lee Slattery of England after one round of this World Golf Championship.

Tiger Woods, a seven-time winner at Firestone, looked as if he might be part of the leaderboard until his last six holes. He had to lay up with his third shot on a par 5 and three-putted from 25 feet on the 18th for an even-par 70.



Defending champion Adam Scott, in his first tournament since losing a late lead in the British Open, four-putted from just inside 10 feet and had 71.
