David Ogrin used his hometown edge to shoot a 7-under-par 65 Friday and earn a one-stroke lead over Jay Haas after the second round of the Texas Open golf tournament in San Antonio.
Ogrin, who lives in nearby Garden Ridge and plays regularly at La Cantera Golf Club, started the day at 2-under and moved to 9-under with a round buoyed by two birdie streaks.
Tiger Woods, Bob Tway and John Huston were two shots back.
Woods, 20, the three-time U.S. Amateur champion, began the day at 3-under. He started his round with a birdie, but three-putted for a bogey on the par-3 third, and four-putted for a double bogey on the par-3 sixth.
Redemption came on the back nine, where he made six birdies, his final one coming on the par-3 17th, when he sank an 18-foot putt.
Laura Davies, trying to top the money lists in Europe and America, surged into the lead at the Betsy King LPGA Classic in Kutztown, Pa., with a 7-under-65.
Her two-round total of 134 gave her a one-stroke lead over first-round leader Annika Sorenstam in the $600,000 event at Berkleigh Country Club.
Tommy Aaron, Bud Allin and Senior PGA Tour rookie Bob Eastwood all shot 5-under-par 67s and shared a one-stroke lead over six others after one round of the $700,000 Transamerica Senior Golf Championship in Napa, Calif.
Aaron, the only player among the threesome who has won as a senior, had six birdies in his round on a warm, windless day at Silverado Country Club. Allin and Eastwood both had five birdies on the 6,632-yard layout.
