Waldorf claims narrow lead
Last updated: 8th June 2013
Duffy Waldorf shot a four-under par round of 68 to claim a one-stroke lead after the weather-delayed second round of the Regions Tradition.
The Champions Tour rookie made three birdies and one bogey on both the front and back nines to lead the second senior major of the year from Jeff Sluman.
The 50-year-old Waldorf shared the first-round lead of the Senior PGA Championship a fortnight ago with Jay Haas, but faltered as the event went on. He hopes that his early lead will conclude in a celebration over the weekend, however.
"My friend was telling me, 'I don't really care if you're leading after the first or second round or even the third. Just lead after the fourth,' " he said.
"It's not NASCAR, so I don't get extra points for how many laps I lead."
Another stroke further back in a tie for third place are Fred Couples, Mark Calcavecchia, Michael Allen and Canadian Rod Spittle.
Couples started his round slowly but made a 71 after three birdies late towards the end of the round.
"I hit way too many balls," Couples said.
"I came out and practiced a little longer, and then we went out and hung out in the van and left the grounds to have lunch. I'm tired now, but I felt pretty good out there. I just couldn't hit the ball close enough."
