Bernhard Langer opens 7-stroke lead in Chubb Classic

NAPLES, Fla. — Bernhard Langer followed his opening 10-under 62 with a 66 on Saturday to increase his lead to seven strokes in the PGA Tour Champions' Chubb Classic at TwinEagles.

The 58-year-old German star's lead is the largest in the event after 36 holes. At 16-under 128, he's closing in on the tournament-record 20-under total that he set in 2011 and Kenny Perry matched in 2012.

Langer won the event in 2011 and 2013.

Langer eagled the par-5 fifth and added birdies on Nos. 5, 6, 16 and 17.

Perry and Scott Dunlap were tied for second. Perry had a 67, and Dunlap shot 66.

Only a bogey on No. 7 stopped Dunlap's birdie run from Nos. 3-8. He also birdied Nos. 16 and 17.

Perry had three birdies and a bogey from Nos. 14-17.
