Noh seizes lead, Woods in hot pursuit

Seung-Yul Noh capped a flawless nine-under 62 with two birdies on Friday to seize a one-shot first-round lead in the Deutsche Bank Championship, the second stop in the US PGA Tour playoffs. South Korea’s Noh, playing in more testing afternoon conditions, roared past early pace-setters Tiger Woods and Jeff Overton, who had shared the morning clubhouse lead on 64 but ended the day sharing third place alongside Ryan Moore and behind Noh and American Chris Kirk — who carded an eight-under 63 at the TPC Boston. Noh nabbed his first birdie of the day on the par-five second, then reeled off four straight birdies from the fourth. Four birdies coming home included back-to-back efforts at 17 and 18 — where he landed a wedge five feet from the pin. “Everything (was) good today,” said the 21-year-old Noh, who won on the Asian Tour at 17 and earned his US tour card in qualifying school in December.
