Brad Faxon's steady putting helped he and teammate Jeff Sluman to 10 birdies and a one-shot lead in the Champions Tour's Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf. Faxon had seven birdies as the duo combined for a 10-under-par round in the better-ball team competition at the Club at Savannah Harbor. Champions Tour points leader Bernhard Langer and teammate Tom Lehman were next and will be paired with Faxon and Sluman in Saturday's second round of the 54-hole event. Eight-time major champion Tom Watson and partner Andy North finished the opening round in a three-way tie for third at 8-under. Craig Stadler and Kirk Triplett also teamed for a 64, along with Tom Kite and Gil Morgan.
