PITTSBURGH (AP) Bernhard Langer overpowered vulnerable Fox Chapel for the second straight day, shooting a 6-under 64 on Friday to take the lead in the Senior Players Championship.

The two-time Masters champion was at 11-under 129 after 36 holes as he searches for his first victory at the Senior Players after five top-10 finishes.

Doug Garwood, tied for the first-round lead, and Bill Glasson were two strokes back. Garwood birdied two of the last three holes, and Glasson had a 64.

Joe Durant, also tied for the first-round lead, was 8 under along with Michael Allen, John Riegger and Mark McNulty. Defending champion Kenny Perry moved into contention at 7 under with a 63, the low round of the tournament so far.
