LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Luke Donald figured he might have to win at Disney to have his best shot at capturing the PGA Tour money title. He took a good step Thursday in the Children's Miracle Network Classic with a 6-under 66 for a seven-way share of the lead.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Luke Donald figured he might have to win at Disney to have his best shot at capturing the PGA Tour money title. He took a good step Thursday in the Children's Miracle Network Classic with a 6-under 66 for a seven-way share of the lead.

Donald is playing the opening two rounds with Webb Simpson, whose runner-up finish last week at Sea Island gave him a $363,029 lead in the money list. Simpson also played bogey-free on the easier Palm course for a 68.

The wind began blowing in the morning as a front came through, giving Disney surprisingly cool conditions.

Donald, who just returned from Europe, immediately put his name in the mix to stay near the top of the leaderboard throughout the morning. Simpson made a late surge and also was satisfied with his start.

With so much attention at the top, it's even more critical at the bottom as players try to finish in the top 125 on the money list to keep full status for next year. James Driscoll is at No. 125, and he was among those who opened with a 66 to tie for the lead.

Taiwan Championship

At Yang Mei, Taiwan, top-ranked Yani Tseng opened her home event with a 4-under 68 on Thursday in front of a large gallery to join Japan's Ai Miyazato atop the leaderboard in the LPGA Taiwan Championship.

Tseng won the season-opening LPGA Thailand in February at Siam Country Club for the first of her tour-high six victories. She has nine worldwide victories this year.
