Jimenez shoots 61, ties Montgomerie for Calgary lead

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Miguel Angel Jimenez eagled the par-5 18th hole Saturday to match the course record of 9-under 61 and tie Colin Montgomerie for the second-round lead in the Shaw Charity Classic.

Jimenez matched Fred Couples' course record set last year. The 51-year-old Spanish player made seven birdies in a nine-hole stretch in the middle of the round.

Montgomerie, the first-round leader after a 62, birdied the 18th for a 66 to join Jimenez at 12-under 128 at Canyon Meadows. The Scot had an eagle, five birdies and three bogeys.

Jimenez won the season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship in Hawaii in January. He also won the Greater Gwinnett Championship last year in his first start on the Champions Tour.

Jeff Maggert, the Regions Tradition and U.S. Senior Open winner, was 10 under after a 63.
