PUNTA CANA, Dominican Republic (AP) Adam Long went from trying to hit a fairway to a course so open it's hard to miss. He went from grinding over pars to pouring in birdies.

One week after he toiled to a tie for 13th at Winged Foot in the U.S. Open, Long is loving life in the Caribbean.

Long ran off five birdies in a six-hole stretch to grab the lead and finished with key par saves for an 8-under 64 that give him a two-shot lead over Hudson Swafford in the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship.
