NAPLES, Fla. — Craig Stadler shot a bogey-free five-under-par 67 in 30-mph wind Saturday to take a one-stroke lead after the second round of the Champions Tour's ACE Group Classic.
Stadler, back on the 50-and-over tour after tying for 35th last week in the PGA Tour's Pebble Beach event, had a 10-under 134 total on the TwinEagles course.
"It was a pretty good day of survival," Stadler said. "This couldn't be a harder golf course today.... I made a bunch of four- and five-footers, which in the conditions there was a pretty good chance you'd miss a couple, but I pretty much hit every one."
Stadler won the B.C. Open last year to become the first senior tour player to win a PGA Tour event. He also won three times on the Champions Tour after turning 50 in June.
