RENO: Argentina’s Andres Romero shot a bogey-free round to grab a one-point lead over Noh Seung-yul of South Korea after the first round of the Reno-Tahoe Open. Romero finished with seven birdies and 14 points under the modified Stableford scoring system. It is the first time in six years the scoring system has been used on the USPGA Tour since the International in Colorado. Tour rookie Noh, 21, had seven birdies and a bogey for 13 points at the Montreux Golf & Country Club. Josh Teater, John Mallinger and Ricky Barnes were tied for third with 11 points.
