Chalmers and Klauk lead after round one of US Bank Championship from Brown Deer


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Greg Chalmers had success with his new putting grip and Jeff Klauk only needed nine putts in his first nine holes for each to shoot 6-under 64s during a blustery first round of the U.S. Bank Championship on Thursday.

Chalmers started his day with two bogeys before making birdies on five of his final six holes on the front nine, including a 55-foot putt on No. 4 followed by a 26-footer on No. 5. He also birdied the final three holes.

Klauk shot 5 under on the front nine and made his only mistake with a bogey at No. 12. He rebounded with back-to-back birdies and finished the round with four straight pars, including a save from the rough on the 18th.

Frank Lickliter II, Tag Ridings, Jason Gore and Skip Kendall all finished at 4-under 66.
