VICTORIA, British Columbia (AP) Scott McCarron birdied five of the first six holes and finished with a course-record 8-under 62 to take the first-round lead Friday in the Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship.

The 51-year-old McCarron birdied all four par-5 holes - Nos. 1, 12, 13 and 18 - in chilly conditions at Bear Mountain Resort, the first-year venue in the PGA Tour Champions event that was played in Hawaii from 2012-14.

"I really enjoy the golf course. I love the layout," McCarron said. "It's really one of the prettiest golf courses I've ever played in my life, it's just fantastic. It's my new favorite golf course, of course."
