GLENEAGLES, Scotland (AP) — Bernd Weisberger of Austria and Ricardo Gonzalez of Argentina took full advantage of ideal scoring conditions to shoot 7-under 65 Thursday and share a one-shot lead after the first round of the Johnnie Walker Championship.

The 27-year-old Weisberger capped his round with three closing birdies as he tried to make amends for losing out in a five-man playoff two years ago on the PGA Centenary course set to host next year's Ryder Cup.

The 352nd Gonzalez is a four-time Tour winner, but has gone four years without a victory.

Six players, including the English trio of Oliver Fisher, Ross Fisher and Mark Foster, were a shot behind.
