Funk Takes Over Buick Lead

Compiled From Wire Services

Fred Funk is having the time of his golfing life.

Funk shot a 7-under-par 65 to move into a five-way tie for the lead at the halfway point of the rain-soaked Buick Challenge, another sparkling round in a six-week run filled with them.

Also tied for the lead at 10-under 134 after two rounds were Michael Bradley, John Maginnes, Davis Love III and Len Mattiace. First-round leader Bobby Wadkins dropped three shots back with a 1-over 73.

Defending champion Gail Graham shot her second consecutive 5-under-par 67 to take a one-stroke lead after the second round of the Fieldcrest Cannon Classic in Cornelius, N.C. Dottie Pepper and Kim Saiki were a stroke back after 67s.

Jim Colbert, hoping for a late-season charge to repeat as Senior Tour money leader, carded a 6-under-par 65 and took the first-round lead in the $1.5 million Vantage Championship in Clemmons, N.C.
