Paul Broadhurst shoots 63 to take PGA Tour Champions lead

   MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Paul Broadhurst shot a 9-under 63 on Friday to take a two-stroke lead in the PGA Tour Champions' American Family Insurance Open.

   The Englishman had an eagle and seven birdies -- three on his final four holes -- at University Ridge. He won the Senior British Open and PURE Insurance Championship last year.

   Brian Henninger had a 65, and tournament host Steve Stricker joined Kenny Perry and Billy Andrade at 66. Stricker is making his first start in his hometown event after turning 50 in February. He tied for 16th last week in the U.S. at Erin Hills.

   Fred Couples was another stroke back along with Kevin Sutherland, Corey Pavin, Stephen Ames, Brandt Jobe, Jeff Maggert and Phillip Price.

   Madison player Jerry Kelly opened with a 68, defending champion Kirk Triplett had a 69, and Nick Faldo shot 71. Faldo is making his first PGA Tour Champions start since 2015.

   Players were allowed to lift, clean and place their golf balls in the fairways because of wet conditions.
