Stroud's 64 leads morning wave


GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Chris Stroud rode a red-hot putter into the early lead on Thursday at the Wyndham Championship.

Stroud used just 23 putts on greens he called "fabulous" in a round of 64 that lifted him to the top of the leaderboard. He owns a one-stroke advantage over Matt Jones, Rober Garrigus and Andrew Svoboda, who won last week's Tour event.

"You know, just made a lot of putts," Stroud said. "I got away with a lot today. I'm going to the range today. I won't be going home very quickly. I'm coming here to get sharp for the FedEx and I'm glad I'm here."

Stroud ranks 48th in the FedExCup. He has four top-10s this season, including a playoff loss to Ken Duke at the Travelers Championship.

John Senden is alone at 4 under while Bob Estes, Matt Every, Rory Sabbatini, Brian Harman, Seung-Yul Noh, Alistair Presnell, Scott Gardiner and Jim Herman all shot ounds of 67s.

Thursday is shaping up to be the best day, weather-wise, of the week. There is a 50 percent chance of showers on Friday and that increases to 80 and 60 percent, respectively, on Saturday and Sunday.
