McCarron shoots 63 for share of Warwick Hills lead
GRAND BLANC, Mich. (AP) — Scott McCarron shot a 9-under 63 on Saturday at Warwick Hills for a share of The Ally Challenge lead with Tom Lehman and Jeff Maggert.
Coming off a successful title defense two weeks ago in Calgary, Alberta, played an early three-hole stretch in 4 under — making an eagle on the par-4 12th. He had six birdies and a bogey on his second nine, birdieing the last three and four of the final five.
The 53-year-old McCarron has seven PGA Tour Champions victories, also winning in Wisconsin in June. He won three times on the PGA Tour.
Lehman shot his second straight 67, and Maggert had a 68 to match McCarron at 10-under 135. The 49-year-old Lehman won in Iowa in June for his 11th senior title.
Mark O’Meara had a 64 to join Tom Byrum (66), Paul Broadhurst (68) and Esteban Toledo (69) at 9 under. First-round leader Brandt Jobe had a 71 to drop into a tie for eighth with David McKenzie (69) at 8 under.
Vijay Singh, a three-time winner at Warwick Hills in the PGA Tour’s defunct Buick Open, was 7 under along with two-time Warwick champion Kenny Perry (67), Bernhard Langer (67), David Toms (70) and Joey Sindelar (67). Fred Couples, the 1994 Buick Open winner, was 2 under after a 73.
