BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Michael Allen matched the Champions Tour record with a 12-under 60 on Friday in the Allianz Championship, finishing the first round with an eagle and 10 birdies.

The 55-year-old Allen became the ninth player in the history of the 50-and-over tour to shoot 60 and the first to accomplish the feat on a par-72 course.

Allen opened on the 10th hole and played each nine in 6-under 30 on The Old Course at Broken Sound. He has five tour victories, winning the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic and Greater Hickory Classic last year.

Scott Dunlap was second at 63, and Tom Lehman, Chien Soon Lu and Wes Short Jr. shot 65.
