Every shoots course-record to lead Texas Open

Records fell on the first day of the Texas Open but not from the clubs of the likely suspects.

Despite having the likes of former British Open winner Ben Curtis in the ranks, alongside world No.15 Matt Kuchar, and reigning champ Brendan Steele, it was 2010 PGA Tour rookie Matt Every who blitzed the field with a record-breaking, flawless 63 to lead by three strokes on Thursday.

"No bogies is always good no matter what course," Every told reporters. "I didn't even know what the course record was until I got done."

"I kind of kept going and got a few good breaks in the middle of the round to keep the momentum going and then (it) added up to nine-under."

And when your lucks in, your lucks in, even when Every screwed his approach shot badly wide fortune was smiling down.

"That was really lucky. Pulled it. Knew it was going to be no good and then it hit the rocks and kicked up right next to the green. One of the best breaks I've ever gotten and -- I've been on the other end of those. I'll take it," he said.

However, Every still has a ways to go and wasn't the only player to go bogey-free. Curtis and Hunter Haas too had flawless rounds, making a five-under 67 and six-under 66 respectively.
