BETHESDA, Md., July 4 (UPI) -- Tom Pernice shot the low round of the tournament so far Friday to grab a share of the lead after 36 holes at the AT&T National in Bethesda, Md.

Pernice fired a 7-under 63 over the Congressional Country Club course for a two-day total of 131. Jeff Overton matched that 36-hole total by shooting a 65.

Cliff Kresge and Anthony Kim shared third at 134. First-round leader Steve Marino was one of seven players at 135.

Pernice, with two PGA Tour victories to his credit, played a bogey-free round.

"I hit a lot of iron shots in there close and I had a couple of 20 footers that were the bonuses," Pernice said.

Marino was joined in fifth place by Rod Pampling, Steve Stricker, Nick O'Hern, John Merrick, Jeff Maggert and Billy Mayfair.

Defending champion K.J. Choi was at 139.

It took a score of 143 to make the cut. Among those missing it was Masters champ Trevor Immelman (144).
