RIDGEDALE, Mo. (AP) Woody Austin and Michael Allen shot a 12-under 59 in better-ball play Saturday to take the second-round lead in the PGA Tour Champions' Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge.

Austin and Allen played Buffalo Ridge's Springs Course after opening with a 5-under 49 on the par-3 Top of the Rock course. Austin won the Mitsubishi Electric Classic last week in a playoff in Georgia for his second victory in the last three events on the 50-and-over tour.

Defending champions Billy Andrade and Joe Durant were a stroke back at 16 under along with the teams of David Frost-Roger Chapman and Kenny Perry-Scott Hoch. Frost and Chapman had a 61 at the Springs, while Andrade-Durant and Perry-Hoch each shot 46 at Top of the Rock. At the par-3 course, the teams played nine holes of modified alternate shot and nine of better ball.

Larry Nelson and Bruce Fleisher had a two-stroke lead in the Legends Division for players 65 and older, shooting a 6-under 48 at Top of the Rock to reach 15-under 93.
