ATLANTA - Olin Browne shot a tournament-record 8-under 64 to take the second-round lead in the Champions Tour's Greater Gwinnett Championship and then watched Bernhard Langer match the mark to stay close.

Langer made a 30-foot eagle putt on No. 18 for his 64.

Browne was at 12 under, a shot ahead of Langer. Langer won the tournament in 2013 and finished second last year.

Browne's white shoes were streaked with red mud by the end of his day at soggy TPC Sugarloaf. The rain-delayed first round was completed early Saturday.

Rocco Mediate, who lost the lead with a double bogey on No. 11, was third at 9 under after a 67.

First-round leader Tommy Armour III was 6 under after a 71.
