Golf Roundup

The golf roundup …
CONOVERó Bob Tway was walking from the putting green to the first tee at Rock Barn on Friday morning when he saw Mike Goodes shot a 28 on the front nine.
“After playing the pro-am we knew we had to shoot low,” Tway said. “But then when you see someone shoot 28, I think it kind of shocks you in that, ‘Ooh, we’re going to have to shoot really low.'”
No problem for Tway, especially when you have only 23 putts.
Tway birdied the 18th hole for a 9-under 63 on Friday to open a one-shot lead over Goodes, Tommy Armour III, Joe Ozaki and Mark Wiebe after the first round of the Champions Tour’s Greater Hickory Classic.
After shooting a 62 in the final round on the same course last year when the event was played in October, Tway took advantage of the hot conditions that made for target golf. Rock Barn was tamed by soft greens, firm fairways and little wind.
The 69 of 81 players broke par, a record for any round in a Champions Tour event since records began in 1983.
