Fred Funk fired a 7-under 65 in the second round of the Regions Tradition at Greystone to grab the 36-hole lead at the season’s first major of the Champions Tour.

Funk is at 12-under 132, one stroke up on Scott Parel, who posted a 6-under 66 to get to 11-under.

First round co-leader, Scott McCarron, is alone in third at 9-under, following a 2-under-par 70.

Four players are four shots back, and tied for fourth at 8-under. The four include Kenny Perry, Jeff Sluman, Kevin Sutherland, and Miguel Jiminez.

Defending champion Bernhard Langer posted another 3-under 69 and is tied for 10th at 6-under.

Fan favorite John Daly, fresh off a win at the Insperity, posted a second-consecutive 1-under 71 and is at 2-under for the tournament.

With forecasts calling for bad weather, Saturday’s third round will have a two-tee start.

Shot of the Day

David Toms chips in for birdie on the 10th hole. (Make sure you copy that motion, “you folks at home.”)

Putt of the Day

“The irony is Scott [Parel] and I have become really good buddies and I’ve never played with him yet. I was just thinking, ‘Boy, it would be nice to play with him in the last round, last group.’ I’ve got him, so that works out really good. I think combined we’re not 6 foot (tall), but that’s OK.”
