BLAINVILLE, Quebec – Lu Chien-Soon shot a 9-under 63 on Saturday to match the course record and take a one-stroke lead over John Cook after the second round of the Champions Tour’s Montreal Championship.
Lu bogeyed the opening hole, then had 10 birdies in a 13-hole stretch from Nos. 5 to 17 to reach 16 under at Fontainebleau Golf Club. He tied the course record set last year by D.A. Weibring in the inaugural tournament and matched Friday by Cook and John Huston. Cook, a two-time winner this year, had a 66 on Saturday.
Huston was two strokes back after a 67. He won the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open last week in Endicott, N.Y., for his first victory on the 50-and-over tour. Jay Haas and Joey Sindelar were 13 under after 66s.
