NAPLES, Fla. (AP) Defending champion Bernhard Langer shot an 8-under 64 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the ACE Group Classic.

Langer birdied three of his first holes in his bogey-free round on TwinEagles' Talon Course. The 56-year-old German star won the 2011 tournament and finished second behind Kenny Perry in 2012. Langer won the season-opening event in Hawaii last month for his 19th Champions Tour title.

Bob Tway was second. He birdied his last three holes, making a 60-foot putt on No. 8.

Olin Browne opened with a 66, and Duffy Waldorf and Kirk Triplett shot 67. Waldorf is coming off a playoff loss to Michael Allen on Sunday in Boca Raton in the Allianz Championship.

Allen had a 68.
