May 13, 1999

THAME, England (AP) _ Phil Price of Wales and Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez shot 7-under-par 65s Thursday in the opening round of the Benson and Hedges Open and shared a two-stroke lead.

Roger Wessels of South Africa finished at 67. Six were three back at 68, including Europe’s top money winner the last six seasons, Colin Montgomerie, and Nick Faldo.

Faldo has made only four of 10 cuts this season.

He birdied four of his first eight holes and then battled through windy conditions to register his second best score of the season.

``I’m pleased _ I played pretty solid and kept it going,″ Faldo said. ``Now I’ve just got to keep doing it.″

Two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal and fellow Spaniard Seve Ballesteros fired 70s.
