TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) -- Gary Hallberg of the United States made eight birdies in a 7-under 63 Friday during the windy second round of the Senior British Open, taking a three-stroke lead on Bernhard Langer and Tom Lehman.
Langer had a 73 after his opening 64, logging a triple-bogey 7 on the 13th hole.
"I think Gary's 63 is the round of the year. Shooting 7 under today is like 10 or 11 under on a decent day. That's how good it was and I take my hat off to him," Langer said.
Like Langer, Lehman played when the wind was at its strongest, with gusts up to 25 mph. He managed one birdie at the 17th and dropped shots on the 11th and 14th to finish with a 71.
"When I saw Gary's score going on the board I thought, `Wow! Did he play the par-3 course across the road?' He's a bit of a character, so nothing surprises me what he might shoot," Lehman said.
