LASALLE, Ontario, July 6 (UPI) -- Walter Morgan, matched the low round in Senior PGA Tour history with an 11-under-par 60 Saturday that lifted him from a tie for 59th to a tie for fourth after the second round of the Canada Senior Open.
The only other player to shoot 60 in a Senior Tour event has been Japan's Isao Aoki, who did it in the second round of the 1997 Emerald Coast Classic.
The 61-year-old Morgan, who posted a 73 Friday, completed 36 holes at 9-under 133.
Birdies were plentiful at the Essex Golf & Country Club Saturday as Morris Hatalsky fired a 7-under 64 to tie Tom Jenkins for the lead at 11-under 131.
Remarkably, Hatalsky's score was only the fourth-best of the day. Bruce Lietzke shot a 9-under 62 to move into sole possession of third place at 132.
Bob Gilder carded an 8-under 63 to climb into a tie for 11th at 6-under 136.
With no top-10 finishes this year, Morgan seemed an unlikely candidate to tie a record. He tied for 35th in his last start at the Greater Baltimore Classic and his best result this season is a tie for 16th at the NFL Golf Classic early last month.
But Morgan made 12 birdies and just one bogey, shooting a 6-under 29 on the front and a 5-under 31 on the back. He was 10-under through 13 holes.
