Matt Every shot a course-record 9-under 63 on Thursday to take a three-stroke lead over Hunter Haas after the first round of the Texas Open. Every, who has never finished higher than third on the PGA Tour, had nine birdies in a bogey-free round. It was a career best on the notoriously unforgiving TPC San Antonio course. Ben Curtis opened with a 67, and Fredrik Jacobson, Cameron Beckman, Jason Gore, Troy Matteson and Derek Lamely shot 68. Matt Kuchar bogeyed his final hole for a 70, and Johnson Wagner had a 74 after speaking optimistically about taking advantage of the absence of star players in the field.
