Tom Lehman leads Champions Tour event

GLENVIEW, Ill. (AP) Tom Lehman opened a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Champions Tour's Encompass Championship, shooting a bogey-free 6-under 66 before play was suspended because of a thunderstrom.

Lehman had a 13-under 131 total at North Shore Country Club, playing the first 36 holes without a bogey. The 55-year-old Minnesotan won the last of his seven senior titles in 2012.

Thirty-one players were unable to finish the round because of rain.

Kirk Triplett, John Inman, Roger Chapman and Bart Bryant were 10 under. Triplett and Inman shot 67, Champman had a 68, and Bryant had two holes left when play was washed out for the day.

Michael Allen was four strokes back at 9 under, also with two holes left.
