WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) -- Tommy Gainey and Johnson Wagner each shot an 8-under 62 on Thursday to share a two-stroke lead after the first round of the Greenbrier Classic.

Webb Simpson and Jin Park were close behind after 64s. Daniel Summerhays, Tag Ridings, Steven Bowditch and Neal Lancaster were another shot back.

Players could lift, clean and place their balls after rain fell prior to the start of play.

Gainey and Wagner had bogey-free rounds in the morning. Wagner was 8 under after 12 holes but finished with six straight pars. Both could use a good week in West Virginia. Wagner doesn't have a top 10 finish this year. Gainey's best showing is sixth.

Bill Haas, the winner at Congressional last week, had a 68, while Phil Mickelson came off his runner-up finish at the U.S. Open with a 74.
