WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Mike Goodes shot a 7-under 64 to take a two-shot lead after the first round of the Principal Charity Classic on Friday. Goodes opened the Champions Tour event with four straight birdies and closed with birdies on the 17th and 18th holes. Goodes shot a 30 on the front nine and tied his lowest overall round on the Champions Tour. Jay Haas, who won in Iowa in 2007 and 2008, leads a group at 5-under 66 that includes South African David Frost and former Masters champion Larry Mize. Mark Brooks heads a group three strokes behind Goodes. Sixty-eight-year-old Graham Marsh scored the tournament’s first hole-in-one since 2006 when he aced the 203-yard second hole. Marsh finished with a 73.
