SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Fred Couples shot a 7-under 65 to take a share of the first-round lead with Steve Lowery on Friday at the Champions Tour's AT&T Championship.

Lowery settled for a birdie at the 190-yard 13th after his 6-iron lipped out, then holed out from the fairway from 168 yards with an 8-iron for an eagle on the next hole.

Hal Sutton and Nick Price were a stroke behind, and Tommy Armour III and Chien Soon Lu shot 67s.

Ten players were 4 under: Phil Blackmar, Mark Calcavecchia, Bobby Clampett, Russ Cochran, Scott Hoch, John Huston, Gil Morgan, Steve Pate, Loren Roberts and Eduardo Romero.
