SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) — John Riegger shot an 8-under 64 on Saturday to open a three-stroke lead after the second round of the Champions Tour’s Boeing Classic

The 50-year-old Riegger, making his fifth career start on the 50-and-over tour, had an eagle for the second straight day and added seven birdies and a bogey to finish at 11 under at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.

Tom Lehman, Bernhard Langer, Kirk Triplett and Bobby Clampett were tied for second. Lehman had a 67, Langer and Triplett shot 68, and Clampett had a 69.

Hometown favorite Fred Couples was 5 under after a 70.

First-round leader Bart Bryant, the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open winner last week in Endicott, N.Y., followed his opening 66 with a 75 to drop into a tie for 20th at 3 under.
