American Duffy Waldorf yesterday fired a spectacular bogey-free 63 to take a one-stroke lead over Brad Bryant after the first round of the Michelob tournament in Williamsburg, Virginia. Waldorf, who has had one victory since joining the PGA tour in 1985, had eight birdies, including six over his final eight holes.
