Nick Price seeks first senior title

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, May 31 (UPI) -- Nick Price, a three-time major winner and member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, took the second-round lead Saturday at The Principal Charity Classic.

Price, looking for his first senior title, had a 66 Saturday and was 6-under 136 and is one ahead of six other players after 36 holes.


Overnight co-leader Lonnie Nielsen (71), Bobby Wadkins (67), Andy Bean (68), David Eger (68), Mark McNulty (70) and Kirk Hanefeld (70) share second place at 137.

Price has not won since joining the Champions Tour last year. His best finish was a tie for second at this year's FedEx Kinko's Classic.

"My game wasn't in good shape when I came out here," Price said. "I look forward to tomorrow. On the back, if I get in the hunt, I'll feel the same apprehensions as before."

Defending champion Jay Haas, who won the Senior PGA Championship last week, had a 3-under 68 and is tied for eighth with Mark O'Meara (66), Mike Hulbert (69), Tom Purtzer (71) and Joey Sindelar (71) at 4-under 138.
