John Cook closed with a 30-foot eagle putt on the par-5 ninth hole at Del Monte for a 5-under 67 and a share of the lead with 62-year-old Tom Kite on Friday in the First Tee Open. Kite also opened at Del Monte. He won the 1983 Bing Crosby National Pro-Am and 1992 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, the site of his final two rounds in the Champions Tour event. Cook won the 1981 Crosby for the first of his 11 PGA Tour titles. Mark McNulty, Loren Roberts and Tom Pernice Jr. were a stroke back. They also played at Del Monte. Brad Bryant had the best score of the day at Pebble Beach, shooting a 69. Mark Calcavecchia, Corey Pavin, Gary Hallberg and Peter Senior shot 69 at Del Monte. Defending champion Jeff Sluman had a 71 at Del Monte. He also won the event in 2008 and 2009. Eighty-one junior players from the First Tee program played alongside the pros.
