Billy Andrade, Jose Coceres share Champions Tour lead

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Bill Andrade and Argentina's Jose Coceres share the first-round lead at 6-under 66 on Friday in the Champions Tour's Principal Charity Classic.

Andrade had seven birdies and a three-putt bogey on No. 14 at Wakonda Club. The four-time PGA Tour winner teamed with Joe Duran to win the Legends of Golf in April for his first Champions Tour title.

Coceres, from Argentina, had six birdies - four on the final seven holes - in his bogey-free round. The two-time PGA Tour champion is winless on the 50-and-over tour.

Defending champion Tom Pernice Jr. was a stroke back along with Mark Calcavecchia, Paul Goydos, Michael Allen, Brian Henninger, Grant Waite and Jeff Coston.

Davis Love III opened with a 70. He's making his fourth Champions Tour start since turning 50 in April 2014.
