Bean Levi Lead Suspended Outback

RSS

2007 Outback Steakhouse Pro-AmLUTZ, Florida -- Andy Bean shot a 4-under 67 in cold and windy conditions Saturday for a share of the lead with Wayne Levi in the suspended second round of the Champions Tour's Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am.
 
'I play well in the wind, so I'm ready for the conditions,' Bean said. 'Probably half the tournaments I have ever won have been in Hawaii or Florida. If you can control the trajectory of the ball the wind doesn't take it so much.'
 
Levi shot a 69, finishing in near darkness, to match Bean at 4-under 138 on the TPC Tampa Bay. Levi holed a pitching wedge shot from 118 yards for eagle on the par-4 10th -- his first hole of the day. The ball bounced once, skipped, then spun back in.
 
'I'm just glad I got to finish today,' Levi said. 'I've played in the dark before, so it was good to get the round in. I hit the ball well today, but I've been in Tampa a lot and I've never seen it this cold.'
 
First-round leader David Eger (72) was a stroke back, and Tom Wargo (72) followed at 2 under. Tom Watson, one of six players unable to finish the round that was delayed 90 minutes because of frost after the temperature dipped into the 20s, also was 2 under with three holes left when play was suspended because of darkness.
 
Loren Roberts and Mark O'Meara, making his first start on the 50-and-over tour, were 1 under with three holes left. Jay Haas (72), D.A. Weibring (66), Curtis Strange (71), Keith Fergus (68), Eduardo Romero (68) and Loren Roberts also were 1 under.
 
Craig Stadler withdrew after the round because of a wrist injury. He was 16 over.
