RIDGEDALE, Mo. (AP) Bernhard Langer and Tom Lehman teamed to shoot an 11-under 60 in better-ball play Friday to take the first-round lead in the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge.

Langer and Lehman had a 7-under 28 on the front nine on Buffalo Ridge's Springs Course and added four birdies on the back nine. They teamed to win the 2009 event in Georgia.

Defending champions Billy Andrade and Joe Durant were three strokes back along with the teams of Kenny Perry-Scott Hoch, Paul Goydos-Kevin Sutherland and Corey Pavin-Duffy Waldorf.

Larry Nelson and Bruce Fleisher led the Legends Division for players 65 and older, shooting a 9-under 45 on the par-3 Top of the Rock course. They played nine holes of modified alternate shot and nine of better ball. Jim Thorpe and Doug Tewell were second at 47. Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player were eighth at 53.
