Davis leads by two at RBC Heritage

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - Jason Day and Marc Leishman kept the Australian flag flying high at the RBC Heritage.

Four days after countryman Adam Scott became the first Australian to win the Masters, Day and Leishman shot 4-under-par 67 and trailed leader Brian Davis by two shots Thursday after the first round at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Davis lost a playoff to Jim Furyk in 2010 at Harbour Town after calling a penalty on himself.

"I'd like to do something else in this tournament so I don't get remembered just for that," he said, chuckling.

This time, the Englishman birdied eight of his final 14 holes for a 65 to pull past Day and Leishman.

Day and Leishman can't make history for their country at the RBC Heritage - only enhance it.

Several Aussies have won at Harbour Town - Graham Marsh in 1977, Greg Norman in 1988 and Aaron Baddeley in 2006.

Kevin Streelman and Charley Hoffman were a stroke behind Davis at 66.
