Kelly-Stricker share lead on 66 with

Leonard-Verplank in Shark Shoot-out

Jerry Kelly and Steve Stricker were tied with Justin Leonard and Scott Verplank for the lead of the Shark Shoot-out at 6-under 66 after the first round at Naples, Floriday today.
Kelly and Stricker birdied the fifth, eagled the sixth, birdied Nos. 7-9, then added another birdie on No. 12 at Tiburon Golf Club at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort. They "struggled" after that, playing the final six holes in 1-over.
Leonard and Verplank did the opposite, with birdies on four of their last six holes in the tournament hosted by Greg Norman.
Tim Clark and Chad Campbell were in third place, one back at 5 under, along with Steve Flesch and Dustin Johnson.
Clark made a 40-footer for birdie on No. 2 and closed the round with a 9-footer on No. 18. Flesch and Johnson birdied four of their last six holes.
Ross Fisher and Ian Poulter survived a triple-bogey to finish at 4 under.
Norman isn’t playing in the event for the first time after having right shoulder surgery in late September. The tournament ends on Sunday.
