HUTCHINSON, Kan., July 7 (UPI) -- Tom Watson is the leader halfway through the U.S. Senior Open in Hutchinson, Kan.

In Friday's second round, Watson fired a 4-under 66. At 4-under 136 overall, Watson has a 1-shot lead over Bob Gilder (66), Morris Hatalsky (67), defending champion Allen Doyle (68) and Mark James (69).

"I hit some quality iron shots and yet I hit some iron shots that were pretty ugly too," Watson said after the round. "It was an adventurous round today; very satisfying round in the way I scored, and that's what I'm out here to do. I had the Watson of old kind of feel today."

Peter Jacobsen (66) is sixth at 2-under 138.

Also in contention are D.A. Weibring (139), Bruce Lietzke (139) and Massy Kuramoto (140).

Among those missing the cut were Leonard Thompson (148), Bruce Fleisher (149) and Bobby Wadkins (150).
