LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) Patrick Cantlay shot a 10-under 62 in perfect weather and turf conditions Thursday at La Quinta Country Club for a share of the first-round lead with rookie Lee Hodges in The American Express.

Cantlay played the first seven holes in 7 under, making an eagle on the par-5 sixth and five birdies. The FedEx Cup champion added birdies on Nos. 11-13, two of them par 5s, and closed with five straight pars.

"I got off to a roll at the start and kind of made a bunch of putts and then I kind of lagged on the way coming in," Cantlay said. "But I was happy with everything. I thought I did everything well and it's a golf course I really like. It's in perfect shape and so, if you get the ball rolling on line, it should go in."
