Warriors guard Stephen Curry was three points out of the lead after the first round of the American Century Championship on Friday at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

Chad Pfeifer, who lost his left leg above the knee serving in Iraq, earned a Stableford total of 24 points to take a one-point lead over former Sharks star Jeremy Roenick. Mark Rypien was third at 22. Annika Sorenstam finished 1 under for a Stableford total of 21 points in her first competitive round since retirement. She was tied with Curry and Joe Sakic.

Pfeifer, who's attempting to become the first professional tournament golfer to use a prosthetic limb, opened with a bogey, but his 18-hole score was 70.

Pfeifer won three straight Warrior Opens, a 36-hole event that honors servicemen and women.
