Watson holds his Champions golf lead

October 2, 2009

Tom Watson’s 2-under-par 68 Friday gave him a two-stroke lead after 36 holes at the Champions Tour’s Senior Players Championship in Timonium, Md.

The first-round leader was steady Friday on the East Course at the Baltimore Country Club, making two birdies and 16 pars, with his best shot being a 50-foot birdie putt at the par-4 13th hole.

His 6-under 134 total leads Jay Haas (70), Craig Stadler (65), Bob Tway (68) and Mark Wiebe (67), all tied for second place at the halfway point.

I enjoy competing, Watson said. That’s why I’m out here … to hit the proper shot when the chips are down.

John Cook (68), Bernhard Langer (65) and Loren Roberts (67) all are 3-under 137 and share sixth.
