MAUI, Hawaii, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Defending champions Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson got eight skins and $270,000 Saturday to take the lead after nine holes of the Champions Skins Game.

Loren Roberts and Gary Player won the first hole and $30,000. The teams of Arnold Palmer and Jay Haas and Peter Jacobsen and Fuzzy Zoeller were shut out Saturday.

Watson hit to 10 feet from the hole at the fourth and Nicklaus made the putt for three skins and $90,000.

The par-three ninth was worth five skins and $180,000. Player missed from 18 feet, but Nicklaus sank a 15-footer for birdie. Zoeller was short from five feet.

The format is alternate-shot. The final nine holes, worth $470,000, will be played Sunday.
