JOHNS CREEK, Ga. (AP) — Jimmy Beck and British teenager Sam Horsfield shared the lead at 6-under-par after the first round of stroke play qualifying at the U.S. Amateur Championship on Monday.

Beck, from Columbus, Georgia, had a 65 on the Atlanta Athletic Club's par-71 Highlands Course and Horsfield shot 66 on the par-72 Riverside Course.

Lee McCoy of Clarkesville, Georgia, was one shot back after a 67 on Riverside. Tied for fifth at 4-under were Jonathan Garrick of Atherton, California, who shot 67 on Highlands, and Cameron Young of Scarsborough, New York, who had a 68 on Riverside.
