Tom Watson maintains two shot lead

Tom Watson birdied six holes on the back nine for a 6-under 66 and a two-stroke lead over senior newcomer Fred Couples after the second round of the Champions Tour’s season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship on Saturday.

The 60-year-old Watson, coming off a win with Jack Nicklaus in the Champions Skins at Kaanapali, overcame a rocky start and finished with nine birdies and three bogeys for a 15-under 129 total.

Couples, who shot a bogey-free 66, is making his first official Champions Tour start on a sponsors exemption to the winners-only event.

Tom Lehman had a 67 to join Michael Allen (66) at 12 under.

After momentarily giving away the lead missing three very short par putts on the front nine, Watson surged back to the top with five straight birdies to start the back nine.
