DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) John Inman shot a 7-under 65 on Friday at the Wakonda Club to take a two-stroke lead in the PGA Tour Champions' Principal Charity Classic.

It's the first time Inman, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, has ever led after the opening round on the senior circuit. Inman's milestone round came three days after he won a qualifying event at a nearby course.

Tom Lehman, who has never finished outside of the top 10 in four previous trips to Iowa, was tied for second with Todd Hamilton, Gary Hallberg, Mike Goodes and John Riegger.

Miguel Angel Jimenez opened with a 68 in his first start in the event. John Daly, also making Des Moines debut, had a 74.
