BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Kevin Sutherland and Jeff Maggert both eagled the par-5 11th hole Friday and shared the second-round lead in the Regions Tradition at 10 under.

Sutherland shot a 6-under 66 at Shoal Creek to catch up to Maggert, the opening-round leader in the first of the Champions Tour's five majors. Maggert birdied the final two holes for his second straight 67.

Michael Allen was three strokes back after a 67, and defending champion Kenny Perry had a 69 to join Bernhard Langer and Fred Funk at 5 under. Langer shot 66, and Funk 69.

Sutherland is seeking his first Champions Tour victory. He tied for second in Mississippi in March.

Maggert won the Mississippi event last year for his lone title on the 50-and-over tour.
