Jesper Parnevik, Tom Byrum share Champions Tour lead

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) Jesper Parnevik birdied three of his last four holes Friday at Poppy Hills for a share of the lead with Tom Byrum in the Champions Tour's First Tee Open.

Parnevik had a 5-under 66. Byrum birdied the par-5 18th at Pebble Beach for a 5-under 67.

Parnevik had six birdies and one bogey. The 50-year-old Swede is winless in 12 starts on the 50-and-over tour after winning five times on the PGA Tour.

The 54-year-old Byrum had five birdies in a bogey-free round. He was second last year, a stroke behind John Cook, and is winless in 62 career senior starts.

Mark McNulty was third at 4 under after a 68 at Pebble Beach, the site of the final round.

Davis Love III had a 75 at Poppy Hills. He won the PGA Tour's Wyndham Championship last month to become the third-oldest champion in tour history at 51 years, 4 months, 10 days.
