Senior joins Pavin in the lead in Boca Raton
Boca Raton, FL (Sports Network) - Peter Senior birdied the final hole Saturday to join Corey Pavin atop the leaderboard after two rounds of the Allianz Championship.
Senior carded a four-under 68 in round two, while Pavin managed a two-under 70. They finished 36 holes at 10-under-par 134. The duo will both go for their first tour title on Sunday.
Mark Calcavecchia dropped three strokes in the first three holes, but rallied for a four-under 68. He was joined in third place at minus-nine by 2010 champion Bernhard Langer, who shot three-under 69 on The Old Course at Broken Sound Club.
Peter Jacobsen had the low round of the day as he fired a seven-under 65 to jump into a tie for fifth at seven-under-par 137. He stands alongside J.L. Lewis (67), Joey Sindelar (69) and Michael Allen (67).
Senior started the day two behind Pavin, but fell three back as he bogeyed the first. Senior parred his next four holes before converting a pair of 15-foot birdie putts on six and eight to get within one of the lead.
Pavin, who parred the first eight holes, finally got on the board with a 20- foot birdie putt on the par-four ninth.
Senior and Pavin, who were paired in the final group, parred the first three holes around the turn. Senior got back within one as he rolled in a six-footer for birdie on the 13th.
Pavin responded with a birdie on 14 to push his lead back to two shots. Pavin drained a 15-footer for birdie at the 15th, but Senior answered with a five- footer of his own.
The 52-year-old Pavin missed the green left on No. 17 and that led to a bogey, which cut his lead to one.
Senior two-putted for birdie on the par-five 18th to join Pavin at 10-under.
"Pretty solid day today. The putting was very difficult today," stated Senior, who led entering the final round of this event last year, but closed with a 77 to slide into a share of 17th. "I'm more confident going into tomorrow than I was last year. It's going to be difficult tomorrow."
Pavin parred the last to end alongside Senior.
"It was tough out there today. The wind is hard, especially on the greens," said Pavin. "It was hard to judge the break of putts because of the wind. I could have gotten more out of my round, but I got a lot out of it yesterday."
NOTES: Defending champion Tom Lehman has just four birdies and three bogeys through two rounds. He shot 72 on Saturday and is tied for 35th at minus- one...Despite the windy conditions, 33 of the 81 players in the field broke par in round two.
