NEW DELHI (AP) Defending champion Siddikur Rahman and three-time runner-up Shiv Chowrasia each shot 6-under 65 Thursday to take a share of the lead with three others in the first round of the Indian Open.

''This is a tight and narrow golf course. I'm a very accurate player so I really like this type of course,'' Rahman said. ''You always see me in good positions when I play here.''

Richard Lee, Chapchai Nirat and Joakim Lagergren were also at the top of the leaderboard in the European and Asian Tour co-sanctioned event.

Mithun Perera and Kalem Richardson were two strokes behind. Miguel Angel Jimenez shot a 1-under 70 and is tied for 23rd.
