MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Ben Crane shot a 7-under 63 on Thursday at TPC at Southwind to take the lead in the suspended first round of the St. Jude Classic.

Crane took advantage of a 3 1/2-hour delay that left nearly perfect scoring conditions with no wind and rain-softened greens. He had five of his seven birdies on his final nine, the last a few minutes before play was suspended because of darkness.

Sixty players were unable to finish the round.

Peter Malnati shot a 65, and Billy Horschel also was 5 under with two holes left to play.

Retief Goosen and Joe Durant each had a 66, and Phil Mickelson opened with a 67.

Crane needed only 24 putts for his best round of the season.
