CONOVER, N.C. (AP) Jay Haas shot a 4-under 67 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead after the second round of the Champions Tour's Greater Hickory Kia Classic.

Haas, the 60-year-old former Wake Forest player who won the event in 2005 and 2009, had a 12-under 130 on Rock Barn Golf and Spa's Champions Course. He extended his streak of under-par rounds on the 50-and-over tour to 22, making five birdies and a lone bogey on No. 17. Haas won the last of his 16 Champions Tour titles in June 2012 in Iowa.

Joe Durant, tied for the first-round lead with Haas at 63, had a 69 to drop into a tie for second with Kirk Triplett and South Africa's David Frost. Triplett, the winner last week in Cary, had a 66, and Frost shot 65.

Frost had seven birdies and a bogey to match the best round of the day. Triplett had six birdies and a bogey, and Durant birdied the final three holes to finish with six birdies and four bogeys.
