J.J. Henry shoots 60 at Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS - J.J. Henry made a 50-foot eagle putt from the fringe on his final hole Thursday for an 11-under 60 and a one-stroke lead in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Henry had nine birdies at TPC Summerlin in the lowest round of his career. The two-time PGA Tour winner broke the course record and was a shot off the event mark of 59 set by Chip Beck in 1991 at Sunrise Golf Club.

Henry began play on the No. 10, and birdied Nos. 12 and 15-17 on his first nine. He added birdies on Nos. 2, 4-6 and 8 before eagling the par-5 ninth.

Argentina's Andres Romero was second. He had two eagles in a 61.

James Driscoll, Jonathan Byrd and Jeff Overton shot 63. Webb Simpson had a 64.
