Update: major champions

By Zak Kozuchowski, PGATOUR.COM There are 10 major champions in the field at the Reno-Tahoe Open, but only one of them is close to the lead in Round 1 at Montreux. Shaun Micheel, winner of the 2003 PGA Championship, shot a 68 to lead the group of past major champs. Micheel teed off on No. 10 at 7:22 a.m. MT, making him the only major champion to tee off in the morning wave. Clubhouse leader Nick O’Hern was the first player off the No. 1 tee this morning, which he said gave him an advantage. “First group out, so obviously I got nine very, very fresh greens, and smooth greens, which is nice,” O’Hern said. “The back nine they started to get a little bumpy. The poana is going to crop up later in the day, so those guys are gonna have it a little tougher.” The only other major champion under par is Todd Hamilton, who is currently 1 under through his first 8 holes. Other major champion scores: Jose Maria Olazabal: Even (through 11 holes) Justin Leonard: 1 over (through 12 holes) Ben Curtis: 2 over (F) Lee Janzen 2 over (through 13 holes) Steve Elkington: 2 over (through 12 holes) Rich Beem: 2 over (through 10 holes) John Daly: 3 over (through 10 holes) David Duval: 4 over (through 9 holes)
