Far removed from the Ryder Cup matches, Europeans Justin Rose and Alex Cejka shot 6-under 64s to share the first-round lead in the Texas Open.

Rose, the 26-year-old Englishman coming off three consecutive top-14 finishes, had eight birdies and two bogeys on the LaCantera Golf Club's Resort Course in San Antonio. Cejka, a 35-year-old Czech-born German, had a bogey-free round.
