'I thought I could shoot 55'

Chris Riley equaled a PGA Tour record by shooting a nine-under par 27 over nine holes Friday at the Legends Reno-Tahoe Open. Riley had two eagles, five birdies and two pars on the front nine at Montreux Golf and Country Club in Reno.

"I thought I could shoot 55 today. I was feeling that good," he said. "Then it's weird how your mind just turns on you. It was so easy and effortless. I was feeling great. It was so easy and effortless. I was feeling great. Didn't really get real nervous. Then the bogey on 10 I just missed club. Hit a 9-iron instead of an 8-iron into the green."

Riley shot 37 on the back nine for a round of eight-under par 64.
