VERONA, N.Y. (AP) -- Rookie Leif Olson has shot a 6-under 66 to tie Tim Petrovic for the first-round lead at the Turning Stone Resort Championship.

The opening round of the first event of the Fall Series was rainy and cold, but Olson, a 28-year-old native of Denver, found it to his liking. He had never held or shared the lead after any round on the PGA Tour and has made only four of 17 cuts this year.

Petrovic chipped in twice during his round, posting seven birdies and one bogey. It's the third time this season he's opened with a 66.

One shot behind them were Matt Kuchar, John Senden and Vaughn Taylor.

Defending champ Dustin Johnson birdied his last two holes to finish at 3-under 69.
Play was suspended at 6:30 p.m. because of darkness with nine
players on the course.
