ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jay Haas and Duffy Waldorf shared the first-round lead Thursday in the Senior PGA Championship, shooting 5-under 66 in breezy, cool conditions at Bellerive Country Club.

The 59-year-old Haas, the winner of the major championship in 2006 and 2008, had a bogey-free round. The 50-year-old Waldorf had six birdies and one bogey.

Sonny Skinner, the PGA head professional at River Pointe Golf Club in Albany, Ga., was a stroke back along with Japan's Kiyoshi Murota.

Defending champion Roger Chapman opened with a 72. Peter Jacobsen, the 2004 U.S. Senior Open winner at Bellerive, had a 75.
