DEFENDING CHAMP JOHNSON, VILLEGAS SHARE PGA LEAD

0

SILVIS, Illinois: Colombia’s Camilo Villegas deployed a “chill” attitude and a hot putter to seize a share of the first-round lead Thursday at the John Deere Classic alongside defending champion Zach Johnson. Villegas, who claimed the last of his three US PGA Tour titles in 2010, has struggled through an indifferent 2013, with just two top-10 finishes in 16 starts. Johnson had seven birdies with no bogeys to find himself back atop the John Deere leaderboard. Johnson, of nearby Cedar Rapids, Iowa, notched his 17th straight round in the 60s on the par-71 Deere Run layout.
