Fred Funk Maintains Lead at Regions Tradition Through 54 Holes

Fred Funk posted a 2-under 70 to maintain his lead at the Regions Tradition through 54 holes.

Funk, who is seeking his fourth Champions Tour major, stands at 14-under, one shot up on third round playing partner Scott Parel.

First round co-leader Scott McCarron (69), and defending champion, Bernhard Langer (66), are two shots back at 12-under.

David Toms (66), Tom Lehman (69), and Jeff Sluman (70) are tied for fifth at 10-under.

Funk, 60, will once again be paired with Parel, as he seeks to win his first Champions Tour event since 2012.

Meanwhile, Langer, with a win on Sunday, would tie Jack Nicklaus’ record of eight major titles on the senior circuit.

Putt of the Day


“I’m used to Bernhard being on the top. I’ve got to go out and I’ve got to take care of my business and wherever it ends up, it ends up. I can’t worry about it. If I worry about it, I won’t play well.”
Fred Funk, 54 hole leader, on Bernhard Langer’s surge.
