Cabrera cruises to early lead

Two-time Major champion Angel Cabrera conjured up some of his old magic to seize the clubhouse lead with a six-under 66 in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina yesterday morning (Singapore time).

The Argentina veteran reeled off four successive birdies around the turn to finish two strokes in front of Americans Stewart Cink and Jonathan Byrd, with half the field back in the clubhouse at Quail Hollow.

German Martin Kaymer notched the rare feat of consecutive eagles to join a large group on 69 that also included Northern Ireland's former world No. 1 Rory McIlroy.- Reuters.
