THE WOODLANDS, Texas (AP) — John Daly shot a bogey-free 7-under 65 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead over Kenny Perry in the PGA Tour Champions' Insperity Invitational.
The 51-year-old Daly is trying to win for the first time on the senior tour — and for the first time since the PGA Tour's 2004 Buick Invitational. He birdied five of the first seven holes on the back nine and closed with two pars to reach 11-under 133.
Perry eagled the par-5 first hole in a 65.
Jerry Smith was another stroke behind after a 66. Tommy Armour III was 8 under after a 67, and Miguel Angel Jimenez followed at 8 under after a 66. Fred Couples (68) topped the group at 6 under.
