After shooting 1-under 72 Friday on the Players Stadium course at TPC Sawgrass, Austen Truslow and Jonathan Hardee share the lead after the first round of the Junior Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Truslow, of New Symrna Beach, Fla., carded three birdies in his first five holes before playing the back nine in 2 over. He had four bogeys on the back nine, but an eagle at the par-5 16th helped negate half of them.

Hardee, of Greer, S.C., had three bogeys and a double bogey on his round. But he also had four birdies on his front nine and two more on the back nine, at Nos. 16 and 17.

They lead K.K. Limbhasut, Adam Blomme and Manuel Elvira by a shot. Zachary Bauchou is among those two shots back at 1 over while Brad Dalke, Andy Zhang and Austin Connelly are part of a group at 2 over.

The second round will be played Saturday on Dye's Valley course.
