BARRINGTON, R.I. - Billy Andrade and Helen Alfredsson shot a combined 6-under 65 to take the first-round lead at the CVS Caremark Charity Classic.

Playing in a steady rain, Andrade and Alfredsson recorded six birdies and 12 pars in the best-ball format Monday at Rhode Island Country Club.

Andrade birdied the 401-yard, par-4 16th hole to give his team the lead, which it protected with pars on 17 and 18.

Andrade, a native of nearby Bristol, has co-hosted the tournament since its inception in 1999 and has never finished better than second.

Three teams are tied for second, one stroke back.

Shooting 5-under 66 were Brittany Lincicome and Brad Adamonis, Brett Quigley and Dana Quigley and Boo Weekley and Chad Campbell.
