7-shot lead for Langer at Senior British Open
BRIDGEND, Wales (AP) Bernhard Langer has a seven-stroke lead to take into the third round of the Senior British Open after shooting a 5-under 66 Friday to add to his opening 65.
The German is on 11-under 131 overall at a sunny Royal Porthcawl with Scotland's Colin Montgomerie (66) and England's Chris Williams (70) tied for second on 4-under 138.
Spaniard Pedro Linhart (69) is a further shot back in fourth, while Americans Bob Tway (73) and Tom Watson (66) share fifth on 2-under 140.
Langer threw away a two-stroke lead on the final hole at Royal Birkdale last year and then was beaten for the title in a playoff with Mark Wiebe of the United States.
