Waldorf had a bogey-free round at Hualalai Golf Course to reach 12-under 132.

Davis Love III, Tom Lehman and Tom Pernice Jr. were a stroke back in the event for major champions from the last five years, other tournament winners in the last two seasons and sponsor invitees. Lehman had a 65, and Love and Pernice shot 67.

Tom Watson bettered his age of 66, shooting a 65 to join Olin Browne (66) and first-round leader Joe Durant (69) at 10 under.

Love played in the PGA Tour's Hawaii events the last two weeks. The U.S. Ryder Cup captain tied for 29th at Kapalua in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and made the 36-hole cut but failed to advance to the final round in the Sony Open in Honolulu. He won the PGA Tour's Wyndham Championship in August at 51 years, 4 months, 10 days to become the third-oldest champion in tour history.
