KAPOLEI, Hawaii, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Mark Wiebe overcame windy conditions to record a 3-under-par 69 Saturday, hanging onto the lead of the Pacific Links Hawaii Championship through two rounds.

Wiebe entered the day with a two-shot lead over Mark Calcavecchia and John Cook and finished 36 holes with a one-stroke advantage over Vijay Singh at 11-under-par 133.

Wiebe, who won the Senior British Open Championship two months ago, skillfully played the blustery breezes at Kapolei Golf Club en route to the lead.

Meanwhile, Singh -- making his Champions Tour debut -- charged into sole possession of second place at minus-9 with a 6-under 66, notching the low round of the day.

Sharing third at 8-under were Brian Henninger (69) and Corey Pavin (68).

Cook (71) and Sandy Lyle (67) were tied for fifth at 7-under.

Calcavecchia (72) dropped into a seven-place tie at 6-under with Bernhard Langer (69), David Frost (69), Bart Bryant (70) and Gene Sauers (69).
