(AP) 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.


PERTH INTERNATIONAL

South Korea's Jin Jeong and Australians James Nitties and Clint Rice also shot 68 at Lake Karrinyup in the event co-sanctioned by the PGA Tour of Australasia.


Dustin Johnson topped the group at 69. Fellow American Bo Van Pelt, the defending champion, had a 70.
