Mark Calcavecchia leads after late eagle
August 28, 2011

Mark Calcavecchia eagled the par-5 18th hole for a 5-under 67 and a share of the second-round lead Saturday in the Champions Tour’s Boeing Classic.

Calcavecchia, winless in 30 career starts in two seasons on the 50-and-over tour, matched Kenny Perry (68), Jeff Sluman (70) and Russ Cochran (71) at 7 under at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.

Bob Gilder (69), Chip Beck (69) and Chien Soon Lu (69) were 5 under.

Defending champion Bernhard Langer was 3 under after a 73.

Fred Couples, the hometown star coming off a victory last weekend in New York in the Seniors Players Championship, shot a 69 to reach 2 under.

Calcavecchia, who won the last of his 13 PGA Tour titles in 2007, birdied the par-3 17th hole. The 1989 British Open champion also birdied Nos. 8, 12 and 14 and bogeyed No. 3.

Perry, coming off a second-place finish three weeks ago in the 3M Championship in Minnesota, holed out from a bunker on the 18th for an eagle. That made up for a double-bogey 6 on No. 14 when his wedge approach bounced off the back side of the green and disappeared.

Cochran, the Senior British Open Champion last month, entered the day with a one-stroke lead over Sluman. The left-hander bogeyed the 17th to fall back to 7 under.

Cochran beat Calcavecchia by two strokes last month to win the Senior British Open,

Sluman also bogeyed the 17th.
