Endicott, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Sutherland fired a 13-under 59 on Saturday at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open to become the first player in Champions Tour history to shoot that magic number.
Sutherland actually had a chance for the first 58 in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event, but he missed a 6-foot par putt on the 18th En-Joie Golf Course.
The 2002 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship winner ended two rounds at 14- under-par 130.
Steve Lowery shot 7-under 65 to move into second place at minus-13. First- round co-leader John Cook carded a 5-under 67 in round two. He fell into third place at 12-under-par 132. Scott Hoch (64) is one stroke back at minus-11.
Olin Browne, who shared the first-round lead with Cook, managed a 3-under 69 on Saturday. Browne was joined in fifth place at 10-under 134 by Bernhard Langer, who has won two majors this year, and John Riegger. Langer and Riegger both shot 67 for the second day in a row.
