BOCA RATON, Fla., Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Rocco Mediate fired a course-record 11-under 61 Saturday to grab a three-stroke lead at the Allianz Championship.

David Frost carded a 65 to take sole possession of fourth at 9-under.

Defending Allianz champion Corey Pavin (69), Fred Funk (69), Larry Mize (67) and Mark O'Meara (67) ended the second round tied for fifth at 8-under 136.
