Kuchar braves Texas winds

golf

American Matt Kuchar ground out a level-par 72 that he described as "amazing" to share the early first-round lead at the Texas Open in San Antonio where the players struggled in gusting winds.

World number 14 Kuchar, a seven-times winner on the PGA Tour, needed "a lot of luck" as he mixed four birdies with four bogeys on the challenging layout at the TPC San Antonio to end the round level with compatriot Cameron Percy.

Former world number two Jim Furyk battled to a 76 while US Open champion Martin Kaymer ballooned to an 82 in sustained winds of 48kph.
