Coming off a missed cut at Hilton Head last week, Murray made seven birdies for a 5-under 67 and a one-shot lead. His only mistake was a double bogey from a greenside bunker on the par-3 seventh hole.

"Just the fact I did give myself enough opportunities today for birdie, it took a lot of pressure off," Murray said.

Garcia feeling at home for Texas Open

SAN ANTONIO (AP) Sergio Garcia had a long history with Texas even before he became a part-time resident.
