July 21, 2001

LONG GROVE, Ill. (AP) _ Dana Quigley shot a 6-under-par 66 on Saturday to take a four-stroke lead over Jay Sigel after the second round of the SBC Senior Open.

Quigley, who began the day 7 under, made the turn at 12 under and moved to 13 under on the back nine of Kemper Lakes Golf Club. The four-time senior winner has played 139 consecutive tournaments and is eighth on the 2001 money list.

After shooting even par Friday, Sigel climbed into contention with a course-record 9-under 63, his lowest round since the 1999 Vantage Championship.

Sigel, a six-time winner, missed the first 16 events of the year after surgery on both shoulders. His previous low round of the year was a 64 in the final round of the U.S. Senior Open.

Bruce Lietzke, the 13-time PGA Tour winner who turned 50 on Wednesday followed his opening 74 with a bogey-free 66 to move into 12th place at 4 under. After firing shot after shot past the pins Friday, Lietzke found his range and birdied the first four holes Saturday.

Bob Gilder (68), Yoshitaka Yamamoto (66) and Walter Hall (65) were five strokes behind at 8 under.

Hale Irwin shot a 68 for a 7-under 137 total. He won the 1995 tournament at Stonebridge Country Club for the first of his record 31 senior titles, and also won in 1998 and 1999 at Kemper Lakes.

Gary McCord, the CBS announcer who began the round tied for the lead with Quigley at 7 under, shot a 73 to drop seven back at 6 under.
