CONOVER, N.C. (AP) - Bernhard Langer birdied the final hole Friday for a 6-under 64 and a share of the first-round lead with Anders Forsbrand and Dick Mast in the Greater Hickory Classic.

Langer, a two-time winner this season on the Champions Tour, and Forsbrand each had seven birdies and a bogey, and Mast had six birdies in a bogey-free round on the reconfigured Rock Barn Golf and Spa layout.

After flooding in July damaged the Jones Course, tournament officials cobbled together 18 holes that they are calling the ''Champions Course.'' Nos. 10-18 from the Jackson Course are being used as the front nine and Nos. 1-6 and 16-18 from the Jones Course - the usual tournament venue - make up the back nine.

Olin Browne and John Riegger, the Boeing Classic winner in August, were a stroke back. Mike Goodes and Brad Bryant shot 66.
