In his return to Hogan’s Alley, Johnson took a one-stroke lead after the first round.

• Joe Durant birdied his final hole for a 6-under 65 and a one-stroke lead at the Senior PGA Championship.

• Catriona Matthew took the first-round lead in the Airbus LPGA Classic, holing a bunker shot for an eagle and finishing with an 8-under 64.
