Love shoots 63, trails Munoz by 2 at Greenbrier Classic

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) Davis Love III shot a 7-under 63 on Thursday in The Greenbrier Classic, leaving the 53-year-old star two strokes behind first-round leader Sebastian Munoz.

In his best round of the season, Love birdied four of his first five holes on the Old White TPC, which was reconstructed after deadly floods forced the cancellation of last year's tournament.

Love is set to enter the World Golf Hall of Fame in September. His last win came at the 2015 Wyndham Championship, which made him the third-oldest winner in PGA Tour history.

Munoz, a 24-year-old Colombian, was boosted by five birdies on the back nine for a 61.

Defending champion Danny Lee was at 64 along with David Lingmerth, Ben Martin, rookie Xander Schauffele, Graham DeLaet and Nick Taylor.
