Molinari, Wiesberger share lead at Italian Open

TURIN, Italy (AP) — Home favorite Francesco Molinari and Austria's Bernd Wiesberger both shot 66 to share the first round lead at the Italian Open on Thursday, while Stephen Gallacher's bid to earn a late spot on Europe's Ryder Cup team ran into trouble. Molinari and Wiesberger managed six birdies each in their bogey-free rounds to finish six under par. They lead a group of five players, including early leader John Hahn of the United States, by one stroke. Gallacher, who needs a top-two finish to dislodge former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell from Europe's team, opened with a par-72. The Scot is the only player still capable of moving into the automatic Ryder Cup places in the final qualifying event.
