Langer leads halfway through Senior PGA on Trump course

Langer leads halfway through Senior PGA on Trump course

Vijay Singh shot a 4-under 68 amid wind so strong that play was temporarily halted at the Senior PGA Championship on Friday, taking a one-shot lead.

Langer, 59, could break Jack Nicklaus' record this week with his ninth senior major. This is the oldest of the five senior majors, dating to 1937 when Jock Hutchison won at Augusta National.

Langer started with five straight pars on a cool, misty morning before sparse galleries.

Vijay Singh was one shot back after a 66 at President Donald Trump's course on the Potomac River, about 25 miles from Washington.

"I'm driving the ball really well, which makes a big difference", Singh said. "A lot of putts off the green, and I putted them up close, so my putting stat looked very good today, but I think every professional golfer always thinks they can putt better". Playing aggressively despite the tough conditions, he hit 7-wood into the wind to 12 feet for birdie on the par-4 fifth.

"I chipped it well", said Andrade, who also hit 11 of 14 fairways. Mize also eagled 18 and had six other birdies against only one bogey.

He finished his round by hitting a 2-hybrid from 216 yards to 3 feet for eagle on the par-5 18th. "You can very easily miss short putts, but I played well". McCarron and Singh are both two shots back at 10-under par.

"I played pretty solid". Kingston, a South African who got into the field by finishing among the top 20 in money on the European Senior Tour, tied Langer at 7 under before two late bogeys.

Larry Mize, who completed the weather-delayed first round on Friday morning and shot 65 to claim a share of the lead, shot a one-over 73 in the second round and trails by four. Defending champion Rocco Mediate shot an even-par 72.

Notorious for tinkering with his putting method, Singh went to a new putter and a new grip this spring and teamed with Carlos Franco to win the Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf, his first victory on the PGA Tour Champions.

"I feel like Bernhard is catchable, but you've got to play awfully, awfully well", Lehman said. He needed just 24 putts on a day where only three players broke 70 before darkness hit.
