PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Former PGA champion Martin Kaymer has tied the course record with a 9-under 63 to take a two-shot lead Thursday in the opening round of The Players Championship.

Kaymer got up-and-down from a bunker on the par-5 ninth hole to end his round with four straight birdies.

Along with tying the course record on the Stadium Course at the TPC Sawgrass, he broke the nine-hole record with a 29. It gave the 29-year-old German a two-shot lead over Russell Henley on a day of low scoring.

Kaymer became the fourth player to shoot 63 at the TPC Sawgrass. The others were Fred Couples (1992), Greg Norman (1994) and Roberto Castro (2013). Kaymer has gone more than two years since his last win in the HSBC Champions in Shanghai.
