CONOVER, N.C. (AP) - Jay Haas shot a 10-under 62 during the fiirst round of the rain-delayed Greater Hickory Classic on Friday, taking a three-shot lead into the weekend.

Haas is the 2005 tournament champion and tied for second two years ago. He played a bogey-free round at Rock Barn Golf and Spa's Robert Trent Jones course.

Gil Morgan was second after his 65, with Tom Jenkins, Jerry Pate and three-time major champion Nick Price another stroke back. Nine other players, among them former PGA Championship winners Jeff Sluman and Hal Sutton, were tied for fourth after rounds of 67.

Two-time and defending tournament champion R.W. Eaks and Fred Funk - who leads Loren Roberts by 57 points in the Charles Schwab Cup standings - were among those who shot 69.
