PARKVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Allen Doyle shot a 6-under 66 Saturday to take a one-shot lead after two rounds of the Bayer Advantage Celebrity Pro-Am.
Doyle made four birdies on the front nine and three on the back to move to 13 under. He is in position for his first Champions Tour victory of the
season and his first since winning the Fleet Boston Classic in August. Doyle had a bogey-free round until the 17th, but got the stroke back with a
birdie at No. 18 for a one-shot lead over Jerry Pate, who matched the course record with a 7-under 65.
Pate charged into contention with birdies on Nos. 5, 7 and 9, his last holes, and was a 12 under.
Andy Bean (70), Mark James (69), Bob Gilder (68) and David Eger (68) were four shots back.
Bean, who had a share of the lead after the first round, got to 10 under after a birdie on No. 1, his 10th hole, but made bogey on No. 3 and slipped
back to 9 under. He made six straight pars to complete the round.
Gilder made birdie on five of his first six holes, but made bogey at No. 7. He had three bogeys, three birdies and three pars on the back nine.
James, one stroke off the lead after the first round, shot a 3-under 69. Bruce Summerhays also had a second-round 65 and was six strokes back at 137.
