SAUCIER, Miss. (AP) Colin Mongomerie and Joe Durant shared the lead at 5-under 67 on Friday after the first round of the Champions Tour's Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic.

Montgomerie finished with a birdie on the par-4 ninth hole at Fallen Oak. He won the Senior PGA Championship and U.S. Senior Open last year.

Durant also closed with a birdie on No. 9. The four-time PGA Tour champion is winless on the 50-and-over tour.

Gene Sauers, Kevin Sutherland, David Frost, Woody Austin and Brad Faxon shot 68.

Fred Couples, the 2012 champion, had a 71.

Miguel Angel Jimenez closed with a double bogey for a 76. The Spaniard won the season-opening event in Hawaii in January for his second victory in three career Champions Tour starts.
