|Anthony Kim Leads After Round 1|
BETHESDA, Md. - Anthony Kim shot an 8-under 62, the best round of his career, and took a two-shot lead over Tiger Woods, Bryce Molder and D.A. Points after Thursday's opening round of the $6 million AT&T National at Congressional Country Club.
Kim, the defending champion, played a bogey-free morning round and took advantage of soft greens and ideal scoring conditions to set a record for any tournament played at the storied Congressional layout.
"This golf course fits my eye," Kim said. "I love coming back to a course I have good feelings about, and obviously playing well last year helps."
Woods, who started in the afternoon wave, shot 31 on the front side and had just one bogey on his way to a 64, the same number posted by Molder and Points.
"You can be so aggressive out there," Woods said. "You can fire at a lot of flags. The fairways got wide because it's not going to run out. If you get aggressive and get it going, you can post a number out there."
There were 36 players in the 120-player field who broke par on a warm and sunny day at Congressional.
Steve Elkington is fifth after his 65 and Dan Chopra, Jim Furyk and Stuart Appleby are tied for sixth at 66.
