Matt Every, Danny Lee, Pat Perez and Greg Chalmers shot 3-under 68s on Thursday to share the first-round lead at the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook (Fla.).

It was the highest score to lead after the first round in the 14-year history of this event.

Every was the only one among the leaders to play in the morning, when the temperatures were in the mid-50s.

"It was tough," Every said. "You couldn't feel your hands. The wind was brutal."

The temperature warmed under full sunshine in the afternoon, but that only helped a little. Only three players broke 70 in the morning; eight broke 70 in the afternoon.

Matteo Manassero, who didn't break 74 in four rounds at Doral last week, was in the large group at 69. Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth were among those at 70.
